    The University of Scranton has been approved for Tuition Assistance through Memorandum of Understanding with Department of Defense. Active duty, National Guard and Reserve Component Service members enrolling at Scranton in an approved program of study by the VA may be eligible for Tuition Assistance benefits.

    Those interested in pursuing tuition assistance should first consult with their individual unit or base education office for procedures on establishing benefits as well as payment rates, as all branches of service have varying rules and regulations for service members to follow. Once application is made through their individual unit, applicants can contact the University’s Financial Aid office for information on next steps and certification.

    The University has a long history of successfully administering Veteran Administration (VA) education benefits through the Montgomery GI Bill®, Post 9/11 GI Bill® to veterans, active duty service members and their families and we are also proud to work with the VA to cover tuition and fees to qualifying veterans and their dependent children through the VA Yellow Ribbon program.

    The University of Scranton has been recognized for its support of veterans and active personnel of the U.S. military and their families. In the 2017 edition, the U.S. News & World Report ranked Scranton No. 2 for Best College for Veterans. Scranton was also selected by G.I. Jobs magazine as a Military Friendly School.
