Military Affiliated and Veteran Students

  • UMES is fully accredited for accepting Veteran students and assisting them in their needs for certification. Credit is given for any work done during the service related to their major field of study.

    The Certificate of Eligibility must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment when the veteran reports for registration. Benefits to which the veteran is entitled will be sent monthly by the Veterans Administration directly to the veteran after he has been properly certified. Each veteran is responsible for the payment of all fees and expenses at the same time as all regular students. The Admissions Office coordinates veteran services and veterans are advised to contact that office for further information on admissions, tutorials, and special programs.

    The veteran services office is located: 

    Student Development Center (SDC), 1st Floor 
    University of Maryland Eastern Shore 
    Office of Admissions, Room 1140 
    Princess Anne, Maryland 21853.
