Student veterans at UC Irvine

UC officially celebrated Veterans Day last Friday and November is National Veterans and Military Families Month, so it’s a perfect time to recognize the contributions of veterans at UC — students, faculty and staff.

If you’re an employee who’s a veteran, or if there’s a veteran you’d like to encourage to apply for a job at UC, or for admission to UC, the following resources may help. 

Employee resource groups and staff associations for veterans

Support for staff serving in the military and family members of service members

In some cases, if you are on active military duty, you may be eligible for supplemental pay equal to the difference between your military pay and your UC pay. See the Supplement to Military Pay policy for more information.

UC provides up to 26 weeks of Military Caregiver Leave to care for a family member or next of kin who is a covered service member undergoing medical treatment, recuperation or therapy for a serious injury or illness.

If you are the spouse, domestic partner, child or parent of a covered member of the military when that member is on active duty or called to active duty, you may take Qualifying Exigency Leave for a number of activities including military ceremonies, childcare and school activities for the military member’s child, and the military member’s short-term rest and recuperation.
