Thank you for your service!

Things to know:


Veterans Services at the University of Southern Maine (USM) serves veterans, servicemembers, and their families, who are accessing U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs educational benefits, often referred to as the GI Bill. Services are provided on all three campuses (Portland, Gorham and Lewiston/Auburn).

USM is a military-friendly campus and a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon Program for dependents.  USM is also a Servicemembers Opportunity College (SOC).

There are multiple chapters of the GI Bill and navigating the benefits process can be confusing. Transitioning from combat to the classroom can be a challenge, and USM Veterans Services is here to help.
