Current UNCW student?

Graduate student?

Parent of a UNCW student?

UNCW alumni?

The Office of Military Affairs exists to support you in your academic journey and beyond. Our students represent all branches of military service. We have veterans, active duty service members, reservists, and National Guard members, as well as military/veteran family members. Our students are engaged across campus and online in a variety of academic programs. 

Please use the links above to explore our programs and support services. Everyone's situation is different, and we recognize that navigating VA educational benefits and UNCW processes can be challenging. Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions (email Melanie Nelson, the Military Student Services Specialist, at nelsonms@uncw.edu).

Here is a campus map showing Visitor Parking Lot M and the Warwick Center, labeled WC. 

Check out The Military Seahawk Podcast, now available at UNCW Teal TV and streaming on Spotify and Google Play. In Episode 1, we interview Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc, U.S. Army, Ret., and his wife Sharon, also an Army veteran. In Episode 2, we interview Bill Kawczynski, the Director of Military Affairs at UNCW.
