Connect with Veteran Services and learn what supports are available to you. 


Child Care 

If you live in Massachusetts and are enrolled in at least six credits per semester (fall and spring), you may be eligible for the CCAMPIS program, which covers up to 90% of child care costs. If you have a state child care voucher, you can use that voucher for child care at the UMass Amherst Center for Early Education and Care. Contact Student Parent Programs for assistance with this process. Student Parent Programs also provides an array of services that are open to UWW Interdisciplinary Studies students.


Student Support Request

If you are navigating some personal challenges (health, social, financial, emotional, academic) that have impacted your ability to focus on classes, please submit a Student Support Request. This will allow someone from the Dean of Students Office to get in contact with you to determine resources and assistance. You can also review their Student Support Resources page, which has information on support located both on and off-campus.


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 

Learn about the university's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and explore resources, some of which are available to online students such as the Stonewall Center and the Center for Women and Community.
