The MVC will verify proof of military service. Veterans that are receiving federal benefits (GI Bill) or state benefits (Hazlewood) already have this information on file with UT Dallas. Other veterans must present to the MVC one of the following: military ID or DD-214. R.O.T.C. students will be verified by their units at UTA or UNT.

Cords will be available at the Military and Veteran Center (SSA 14.250) the week of December 13th for graduating student veterans who are unable to attend the ceremony.
