The University of Iowa has a rich military tradition that spans over 160+ years.  We are honored to continue to serve all Veteran and Military students.   Offices include Iowa Veteran Education, Transition, and Support (IVETS), Army ROTC, Air Force ROTC, and ISERVE.

From then...

Iowa has a rich military tradition going back to 1861 when 124 students laid down their books to fight. The first military course was established in 1864 and in 1874 a well-organized military department was initiated, with First Lt. Alexander D. Schenck leading the first State University of Iowa Battalion. 

To now..

Continuing this tradition, IOWA currently serves  more than 2,400 students who are members of the VMC community.  Find out why so many members of the military community choose to join the Hawkeye family!
