Military Benefits at UAT’s Appreciation Reception


UAT is a member of the Arizona Veterans Association, and proud to be designated as a military-friendly university with a long history of helping military students succeed.

Since inception, UAT is committed to maintaining a deep understanding of military students’ needs and supporting our nation’s armed forces, veterans, their families.
