    How to Claim Vet Preference

    Since 1945, the Florida Legislature has made a provision to give preference in the hiring process to United States war veterans in recognition of their military, naval, or air service who meet specific conditions. The conditions are as follows:

    • Veterans with a VA service-connected disability
    • Spouses of veterans with permanent and total service-connected disability
    • Honorably discharged veterans with wartime service.
    • Unmarried widow or widower of a veteran who died as a result of a service-connected disability
    • A veteran who has served in a qualifying campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized, to include the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal.

    Florida International University honors this policy and will comply with Veterans' Preference guidelines when filling staff positions. Any applicant claiming Veterans' Preference will be required to attach a DD214 with each application submitted for verification.

    If there are any questions concerning Veterans' Preference, please contact Talent Acquisition & Management by calling 305-348-2500.
