About Vet Connect
Remember reporting to your first duty station and being assigned a unit sponsor? Similarly, Vet Connect, a program operated through Veteran Student Support Services, offers newly admitted student Veterans an excellent way to link-up with currently enrolled student Veterans who can assist them with their transition to the University. Vet Connect Sponsors provide campus tours, assist new students in meeting with their academic program advisors, introduce incoming veterans to other student veterans like members of the Illini Veterans student organization, and coordinate other support to help new student Veterans feel at home at UIUC.

To be assigned a Vet Connect sponsor, contact the Veteran Student Support Services Coordinator.

The Division of General Studies has put together a list of additional mentoring support resources here and tutoring resources here.
