Welcome to the Student Veterans Assistance Program [SVAP] web site
The veterans and military members living, working, and receiving their education at the University of Michigan are a valued and vital component of our campus community. We recognize and honor their sacrifices and value their life experiences as they broaden the diversity of our staff, faculty and student body. The mission of Student Veterans Assistance Program at the University of Michigan is to assist veterans, guardsmen, reservists, and others receiving US military benefits in making a successful transition into the UM community.
Located within the Office of New Student Programs, the Student Veterans Assistance Program helps students make the transition from active military duty to UM, and from UM to active military duty. Whether you are a new student who has completed your service, a student who interrupted your education to serve and are now returning, or a student who began your studies elsewhere and are transferring here, we will help guide you to the resources you need to make the most of your UM experience. This web site is your first stop for information for student veterans. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions or concerns at 734.764.6413.
In addition to the Office of New Student Programs, the Registrar’s Office assists eligible students to apply for their VA education benefits. Both offices are located in the lobby of the Literature, Science and Arts (LSA) building. For more information, contact the VA Certifying Official, Michelle Henderson, at 734.763.9066.
