The Military and Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) certifies enrollment for undergraduate and graduate students who are eligible for veterans’ education benefits. Veterans, reservists, spouses, and children of deceased or disabled veterans should contact the MVRC before enrollment. Veteran dependents and reservists must submit the following:

  1. Certificate of Eligibility
  2. Certification Request Form

Twelve credits are required to be considered a full-time undergraduate by the Veterans Administration. The minimum full-time requirement for a graduate student is nine credits. In addition to regular sources of financial aid, veterans and dependents of veterans may be eligible for VA education benefits. Benefit programs may be reviewed at www.gibill.va.gov.

Out-of-state students may qualify for in-state tuition rates if they meet the criteria defined in the Choice Act of 2014. If you have questions about your eligibility, contact the Military and Veterans Resource Center (MVRC).

The MVRC serves as a one-stop information and referral site to help students transition to college life and achieve their academic goals by providing military-friendly programs and services to IUP’s veteran and military affiliated students. The MVRC is designed to serve student veterans by helping them to find the guidance and information they need to complete their educational goals and by enhancing the sense of community they share with other students in similar circumstances.

For further information, veterans should contact the Director, MVRC, 101 Pratt Hall, Indiana, PA 15705, 724-357-3008. Email may be sent to veterans-affairs@iup.edu. Veterans may also review the IUP veterans website at www.iup.edu/veterans.
