The Veterans Resource Center is committed to assisting those who have served or are currently serving in the U.S. military, and their family members. In collaboration with an array of University departments and community organizations, the center provides coordinated services and resources in a one-stop location to ensure that all veterans and service members are afforded the greatest opportunities for success.

Our service men and women receive individualized assistance in completing request forms such as educational and military transcripts; and applications for the G.I. Bill, Illinois Veterans Grant, Illinois National Guard Grant, State of Illinois MIA/POW Scholarship, Tuition Assistance, and Federal Student Aid programs. Additional services may include help with periods of military activation and deployment; obtaining appropriate housing accommodations; requesting military records; and acquiring community living information, outreach services and health benefits.

The Veterans Resource Center serves distance learning students and students attending both the Macomb and Quad Cities campuses.

Register with the Western Illinois University Veterans Resource Center if you are a veteran or service member. We want to make sure that we provide you with important University services, programs, and updates.
