Veterans at UW-Platteville

You have made the right choice to continue your post-military journey at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. UW-Platteville is a Yellow Ribbon Program school, meaning we have agreed to provide benefits beyond the GI Bill to our student veterans.

UW-Platteville is also a Department of Defense MOU participating school (Memo Of Understanding) for students using Federal Tuition Assistance.

When it is time to start your career, American Corporate Partners works with UW-Platteville to connect U.S. veterans to business leaders through mentorships and online career advice.

SALUTE Veterans' National Honor Society

SALUTE operates by the tenets of Service, Academics, Leadership, Unity, Tribute, and Excellence. These driving principles are what has made SALUTE a national organization with over 200 chapters nationwide.

In the Spring of 2019, the Wright Center for Non-Traditional and Veteran Students received approval for a new chapter of SALUTE in Platteville.

The Platteville chapter received its first members on May 3, 2019, in a ceremony during the spring commencement. The students of SALUTE and the Platteville Student Veterans' Organization will have the opportunity to determine the future of this chapter. We look forward to the growth of the chapter throughout the future.
