Saint Joseph’s University welcomes service members, veterans and their families who are pursuing their academic objectives. Our many varied degree and certificate programs, on-campus and online delivery formats, and veteran- and military-ready academic policies support your educational journey.

SJU recognizes Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) educational benefits, and is a Yellow Ribbon school.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has the most expansive education benefits of any state for its serving Army National Guard and Air National Guard members and their families. Specifically, the Education Assistance Program (EAP) and Military Family Educational Program (MFEP) are excellent way to defray the cost of education for eligible Guard service members.
