Union Institute & University Florida Academic Center will remember our veterans with a recognition breakfast to showcase our appreciation for everything veterans have done, and continue to do for our country. All veterans are welcome to attend.
“There is no more noble cause than to take time to remember those who have sacrificed in behalf of this nation over many, many years. Women and men who serve this nation both at home and around the world deserve our deepest respect and fondest regards for their sacrifices,” said UI&U President Roger Sublett.
Veterans are at the heart of the Union Institute & University Veterans in Union program founded in 2015. The program is designed to recognize and honor the sacrifices made through our veterans’ service to our country, and commit to their success through supplemental grant funding in the form of education and customized veterans’ services.
The Veterans in Union program offers a three-term $7500 living allowance stipend ($2500 per term) for honorably discharged veterans. The stipend is a subsidy to match the VA MHA received by distance education students. This funding makes the use of VA benefits at Union comparable to use at a residential college. The stipend assistance is available for three full-time semesters during the first year of the academic program.

Union is in the Top 25 percent ranking of Military Friendly Institutions recognized by Victory Media in Higher Learning, and accepts previous credits and experience including ACE Credits, Dantes, CLEP, and more.
