Veteran and Military Affairs

The Office of Veteran and Military Affairs is committed to delivering and facilitating comprehensive “military-friendly” services and programs for Florida International University veteran and military-affiliated learners. Our team is available to ensure each veteran and military-affiliated learner successfully transitions to college life and fulfills their professional goals.

The Principles of Excellence are guidelines for educational institutions receiving federal funding. FIU is committed to:

  • End fraudulent and aggressive recruiting techniques and misrepresentation;
  • Provide students with a personalized form covering the total cost of an education program;
  • Provide educational plans for all military and Veteran education beneficiaries;
  • Provide accommodations for service members and Reservists absent due to service requirements;
  • Assign a point of contact for academic and financial advising;
  • Make sure all new programs are accredited before they enroll students; and
  • Align institutional refund policies with those under Title IV.
