Military and Veteran Career Pathways

At University of the Cumberlands, we are invested in the future of our active duty service members, reserves, veterans, and families. Thank you for your service.

The resources provided here specifically assist UC’s Military and Veteran Students and Alumni along with the career services platforms and resources on UC’s main Career Services site. Our goal is to help you prepare and transition to your civilian career. Learn what to expect when you enter the job market and how to reflect your military and educational skills on your résumé, and then search for positions.

If you have a service-connected disability that makes it difficult for you to work, the VA offers counseling, training, education, job placement, and other services to help you launch a new career. Find out if you are eligible and apply online at

University of the Cumberlands (UC) is proud to offer ROTC in cooperation with Eastern Kentucky University Army ROTC program. Students enrolled in the program will be prepared to develop leadership and critical thinking skills that will excel them in their military and civilian careers. Once a student completes the Army ROTC program, they will then be commissioned as an Officer in either the U.S. Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard with a minor in Military Studies.
