The veteran's certifying official is located in the Office of the Registrar in Room 101 of Brigham Hall. The certifying official serves as an advocate and resource person for veterans on campus and has information on local, state and federal resources. Call (608) 342-1321 with any questions before, during, or after enrollment at UW-Platteville.
Veterans interested in educational benefits must complete the necessary application forms for the benefit they are seeking. Although the certifying official provides information about the various benefit programs, the decision about which program to apply for needs to be made by the veteran. For further information, please visit the Registrar website.
For assistance regarding benefit eligibility or to learn about other benefits, veteran's should contact the Grant County Veterans Service Officer at (608) 723-2756 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
The Veteran's Club offers the opportunity for fellow student veterans to come together in order to build camaraderie and support systems. The Veteran's Club invites members who have served in any branch for any length of time in the U.S. military to join. The goals of the club are to unite service member students on campus, to establish a unified veteran's voice on campus and to assist the members in academics, developing social skills and in the understanding of one another. For further information, please stop by the Veteran's Club office in Room 1170 of Ullsvik Hall.
If currently enrolled students receive military orders (involuntary call to active duty) that will interrupt their education, they must provide a copy of their orders to the registrar. Notification of the registrar will allow the student to exercise the following options:
Any students returning from military service or who have interrupted their studies to enlist and attend military training may return without applying for readmission if the period of absence does not exceed two years.
In order to reactivate the student's eligibility to register, the student should contact the Registrar's Office no later than six months following discharge from service or training. An updated DD-214 or NOBE (DD 2384-1) should be submitted to the registrar and the veterans certifying official as soon as possible but no later than six months after the effective date of the orders.
Before enrolling with another university or college, students must contact the Registrar's Office to ensure that classes are transferable. Any such enrollment must be reported at the time of re-entry to UW-Platteville and official transcripts must be provided.
If a student leaves the university to enlist following an academic dismissal, an appeal to the Admissions and Academic Appeals committee may be required. Enlistment will not void an academic dismissal.
For further information, please contact the Registrar's Office at (608) 342-1321 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
