On January 1, 2020, the Military and Veteran Student Services (MVSS) joined forces with the Veteran Education Transition Services (VETS) to create the new unit of Iowa Veterans Education, Transition, and Support (IVETS). 

There are more than 2,400 veterans, dependents, and current service members attending the University of Iowa during any given term, and it is the purpose of the IVETS office to provide all veteran and military-connected students with the resources, guidance and assistance they need to be successful Hawkeyes.

There are more than half-a-dozen educational assistance programs funded through the Veterans Administration and while a majority of our veterans are receiving educational benefits from the VA, we also serve a large and growing population of veterans who do not receive benefits but are continuing their education.
