Office of Military and Veteran Student Services

The University of the District of Columbia (UDC) is proud to be the only public Service Members Opportunity College (S.O.C.) in the nation’s Capital. Our commitment to supporting our military is well-aligned with our mission to develop and support public service leaders.

Whether you are continuing your education or just getting started; currently serving on active duty; a reservist; a national guardsman; a veteran or a family member; we have the programs to help you complete your personal mission of achieving your education goals.

No college can match our experience and dedication in educating active-duty troops, reservists, national guard members, veterans, and military family members.

We understand the military and the challenges of transitioning to civilian life. Our dedicated admissions counselors, experienced military leadership, and military-trusted faculty are here to serve you.
