TAKE YOUR MILITARY EDUCATION BENEFITS TO A UNC UNIVERSITY
The military community thrives in North Carolina. Always has. Especially on UNC System campuses — where over 21,000 military-affiliated students attend. Of course, we support the GI Bill and other military benefits, but we also have dedicated physical and virtual spaces on our campuses for military-connected students to gather. 14 UNC institutions have an active registered chapter of Student Veterans of America (SVA), and 14 have student veteran centers, so you’ll feel right at home at whichever UNC institution you choose.
