Veterans Affairs




The Office of Veterans Affairs and Disability Services is the certifying authority for veterans, service members, and their dependents at Alabama A&M University. Located in Room 106 Carver Complex South, The AAMU Veterans Center helps students make the transition from military life to civilian life at AAMU. Whether you are a new student who has completed your service, a student who interrupted your education to serve and are now returning, or a student who began your studies elsewhere and are transferring here, we will help guide you to the resources you need to make the most of your experience on "The Hill". This web site is your first stop for information for student veterans, and military dependents. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions or concerns.
