Why you should attend?

The University of Arkansas – Fort Smith understands the transition from deployment to campus life can be a difficult one. It is why we connect military service members and veterans with advisors who specialize in veteran student services. At UAFS, veterans receive priority registration, access to a full-time VA vocational rehabilitation counselor, and to the UAFS Veteran Resource Center. Veterans are also able to find support and important network connections through the UAFS’s Student Veterans Organization. This student-led group provides veterans with additional resources, assistance, direction, and support to help ease the transition from military to student life.
