Mission: To help our active duty and reserve military personnel, military veterans and dependents graduate from college quickly and successfully.

Valparaiso University is proudly committed to the success of our veterans:

The Valparaiso University Office of Veterans Programs and Services focuses on the needs of our active duty, reserve, veteran and dependent communities. Under development, it is envisioned as a “one-stop shop” for military and veteran admissions, advising, registration, financial aid, and counseling. It is a resource for veterans in regard to academic, personal, and social needs and a vehicle by which veterans can connect to the University and to each other.

Valparaiso University Veterans Certification

Veterans’ educational certification is provided at the Office of Financial Aid in Kretzmann Hall. Certification may be requested in person during the regular office hours of 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (CST) Monday through Friday. It may also be requested by mail or fax.
