Resources for Veteran Students
From recruitment to graduation, your Veteran Success Advisor is with you to make sure that you are taken care of. If there is an issue with your benefits, a need to change a class, or just a general question, your Veteran Success Advisor is here to help. When it comes to course registration, we understand that you have responsibilities outside of school. For student veterans classified as a "special population", you are able to register early to ensure that you are able to get into the classes that you need.
Resumé assistance, interview preparation, and assistance in translating military experience in preparation for a civilian job search. Access to on campus career fairs and recruiting events throughout the year.
As a student here, you have every resource available to you to ensure your success. This includes free tutoring in our CLR in the basement of the library.
The Accessibility Resources Center ("ARC") provides comprehensive services and support that serve to promote educational equity and ensure that students are able to participate in the opportunities available at the University of New Haven. If you find that you need a quiet place to take an exam, extra time to complete your assignments, or assistance with notetaking, ARC may be able to help.

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) is one of the best leadership courses in the country and is part of your college curriculum.
Military & Veterans Affairs also works in conjunction with ROTC to hold the Joint Forces Leadership Council gatherings where ROTC cadets & current Student Veterans at the University have open panel discussions to share experiences and helpful wisdom with each other. Previous panels discussed leadership traits, transitioning into higher education, study tips, and what to expect as a young commissioned officer.
