The Office of Student Veteran Services serves as the liaison between the University of Florida, its students, and the various federal, state, and local agencies concerned with veterans benefits. We want to ensure that our veterans and dependents are set up for success.
In accordance with F.S. 1009.26 (17a), students who are an active-duty member or an honorably discharged veteran of the United States Armed Forces, and their spouse and dependents, are eligible for a waiver of the transcript fee.
If proof of military status is not on file with the Office of the Registrar, documentation will be required before the transcript fee will be waived.
To receive the waiver, do NOT submit an order through ONE.UF. Initiate your official transcript order by contacting Student Veteran Services at email@example.com.
In 2017, President Trump signed into law the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act, also known as the Forever GI Bill®, which will bring significant changes to Veterans education benefits. Learn more
Beginning Fall 2020, the University of Florida has been approved to participate in the Yellow Ribbon program for eligible Post 9/11 GI Bill® recipients. The Yellow Ribbon program is a provision of the Post 9/11 GI Bill® to help defray the cost of out-of-state fees. The University of Florida will contribute up to $6500 per academic year towards these charges. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will then match the amount of the UF contribution.
Applications will be accepted on a first come-first served basis. Funding is available for 20 undergraduate students and 10 graduate students. For more information, contact Student Veteran Services by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For additional information and eligibility requirements about the program, refer to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website.Complete the Yellow Ribbon Application
