For 50 years, the University of Massachusetts Boston has been committed to the educational success of veterans. At an average age of 32, there are more than 600 veterans on campus.

UMass Boston recognizes the educational value of military education and experience. We award credit earned for military education and/or military service based on recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE).

Veterans from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Marines all call UMass Boston home, including active reservists and members of the National Guard.

Victory Media has named UMass Boston to its 2017 Military Friendly Schools® list, meaning it exhibits leading practices in the recruitment and retention of students with military experience.

The mission of Veterans Affairs is to assist veterans, guardsmen, reservists, active duty military and dependents of veterans. We'll help you maximize your educational benefits and apply them to your undergraduate, graduate or continuing education studies. There are many policies and procedures surrounding military benefits. We have the expertise.  We'll save you time searching for answers and connect you to many resources you may not even know are available.
