As a military-connected student, you may have health-related questions that are different from other students.

Disability Resource Center

If you are a military-connected student in need of support, the Disability Resource Center (DRC) invites you to discuss your transition to college with an Access Consultant. The DRC understands that many military-connected students, especially veterans, arrive to campus with many advanced skills and unique experiences that set them apart from other students and strives to recognize these differences in the services they provide. The DRC provides a wide range of resources and accommodations for disabled student veterans, from extra time on exams to registering your service animal on campus.

If you're ready to connect with the DRC, head to the DRC's Online Student Application or contact:

In-House Counseling

Doctor Michael Marks

After working for the VA for over thirty years, Dr. Michael Marks joined the VETS team to build SERV courses for transitioning veterans. Dr. Marks quickly realized that many veterans needed a confidant away from the VA and other mental health professionals. In this spirit, "Doc" makes himself available to all military-connected students who need counseling, advice, or just a familiar face to chat with during a rough time. Counseling sessions with Dr. Marks are completely confidential and are never reported to the VA or the University of Arizona unless a threat to an individual exists.
