At the University of Saint Francis, we are proud to support our military as they work to secure their personal and professional futures. Whether you’re active-duty, a veteran, or a member of a military family, you have access to financial benefits you can use to reduce or even eliminate your out-of-pocket education costs. USF also has support staff specially trained to support military members and their families from a transitional and emotional perspective.
If you haven’t already done so, you can apply for your military education benefits on the VA website. We also encourage you to reach out to USF’s military benefits experts with any question you may have; an enrollment coach can help you connect at 888-880-6893.
