The VetSuccess on Campus program is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and University of West Florida (UWF). The goal of the program is to help military Veterans and eligible dependents of military Veterans make a smooth transition to college life and to successfully complete their educational goals. The VA has placed a full-time, experienced Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor on campus at UWF. This counselor serves as a one-stop liaison for Veterans, active duty military and eligible dependents who attend or plan to attend UWF.
