FAU Office of Military and Veterans Affairs

The Military and Veterans Student Success Center is part of the Division of Student Affairs & Enrollment Management.  The office promotes activities and programs intended to enhance veteran and military students’ success, while also creating a platform to engage in the community.


Getting Started at FAU

Florida Atlantic University currently serves more than 1,700 veterans, dependents, active duty service members, National Guard and Reserve members pursuing all levels of study, and this number is rapidly growing.  FAU is also part of a large ROTC Battalion that shapes the next generation of military leaders and provides opportunities to continue serving.  Florida is currently home to 1.6 million veterans, and in South Florida alone, we have two major VA Hospitals – one in West Palm Beach and one in Miami.
