University Transfer Information for Veterans

Arizona's public community colleges and universities appreciate and honor veterans and military servicemen and women.

Arizona institutions proudly offer specialized services for veterans and military students. Many institutions have been recognized as Military Friendly.

Transfer can be a wonderful way for veterans to take advantage of educational benefits provided through the G.I. Bill. If you haven't done so already, your first step is to apply for your benefits.

After you apply for your benefits, explore your degree and career opportunities and contact the veterans representative at the community college or university you wish to attend. A list of contacts is included below.

Working in concert with our college and university veterans specialists will ensure a smooth and worry-free experience.
