Ut Prosim: That I may serve. 

This motto embodies the educational and community foundations of Virginia Tech.  We celebrate our military veterans, in particular, for their exemplary service to the nation and their daily contributions to the university.  We are committed to supporting veterans' integration into academic and professional lives at Virginia Tech by providing support networks and a central resource for veterans' information on campus and in the local community.

Welcome to Virginia Tech. We look forward to serving you.

Veterans@VT

Veterans@VT, Virginia Tech's student veterans group and a chapter of Student Veterans of America, recently helped Homes for Our Troop build a house for a local veteran wounded during his service. In early October 2013, the group led the flag-raising ceremony at a key turning event to welcome Marine Staff Sgt. Jeremy Austin and his family to their new home.

  • SCHEV Provides Link Between Service Members and College Education To take full advantage of all the military benefits offered by Virginia, service members need to know about them. That is why the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) has put all that information in one place at http://www.schev.edu/MilitaryEducation.asp . This new link on the SCHEV website includes details regarding financial benefits for active duty military members, financial benefits for family members of active duty members, and education benefits for military veterans and their families. The website also provides links to the separation and reinstatement policies at all of Virginia’s public colleges and universities along with other helpful resources such as information about the GI Bill and the Virginia Department of Veterans Services.
