As veterans, we're eligible for priority enrolment. This becomes particularly useful if you are trying to make sure you don't have class on Fridays or don't want to do calculus before noon. In order to get access to priority enrollment you will need to submit a priority enrolment form to the registrars office. Once this form has been submitted once you will have priority enrollment for the rest of your time in UVa. Its important to remember that this will only give you priority within your class year when signing up for classes. Sign up for priority enrolment here:
All students at UVa are required to have insurance and the school does provide an insurance plan built in to the tuition, however if you have access to VA healthcare you can opt out of this plan. When filling out the insurance form, select "Veteran Affairs" as the insurance provider. Then, put your birthdate or VA policy number (Usually your SSN) into the policy number and policy ID fields.

The Student Disability Access Center (SDAC) is the University of Virginia’s designated access agency for students with disabilities. They're primary role is to determine eligibility and to provide reasonable academic accommodations for students with disabilities. The SDAC provides services to two groups of students: those who have been previously diagnosed with a disability; and those who have never been diagnosed, but find themselves struggling academically, and seek advice and support on their difficulties. Many Veterans can find the transition from the military stressful and challenging especially while trying to maintain academic excellence at UVa and the university works had to accommodate that.
Below you will find the links to both the schools orientation website and to a transfer student program the university uses to get students familiar with all of the overly complex websites UVa uses. Crash Course UVA will help new transfer students get involved and learn about resources on grounds. Students are invited to attend events during their first six weeks to ease their transition to the University.
