Veterans Services ​​

​ ​ ​

Welcome to the University of Houston-Downtown. UHD Veterans Services assists veterans, reservists, guardsmen, and dependents of disabled or deceased veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces.​

Over 500 veterans are currently pursuing a degree at UHD.​ Veterans Services ensures that proper paperwork is completed, certified, and filed with the Department of Veterans Affairs so that payment of education benefits can begin. Veterans Services does not, however, determine eligibility for benefits.


Before receiving approval of your benefits please click the Request VA Certification link to ensure your certification is done in a timely manner.
