We welcome all of our nation’s veterans. If you’re considering college, take a look at other sections of our site, especially Admissions, Financial Aid and Academic Programs, to learn more about our offerings and the steps to apply for admissions and financial aid. In addition, our staff is here to work with you and help you make a smooth transition from military life to college life.
We encourage you to learn more about the benefits and services available to veterans. These benefits may make college more affordable than you thought. What’s more, our staff will answer your questions and help you apply for all eligible benefits.
Here’s important information that our students who are veterans need to know:
Veterans, certain dependents of veterans, reservists and guard members may be entitled to educational benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
You may be able to receive academic credit for your military training or experience. For an evaluation of your military experience, call 610-359-5322 in the Assessment Center.
The American Council on Education (ACE) evaluates military training and education, and translates courses and occupations held by service members into college credit recommendations. ACE can provide you with a transcript describing military training that you completed and, in some cases, a recommendation regarding credit. Obtain your transcript online from ACE.
To preserve good academic standing, veterans, reservists and eligible dependents must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, or they will be placed on academic probation. If the student does not meet the minimum standard at the end of two academic semesters on academic probation, the College will notify the Department of Veterans Affairs within 30 days.
The Department administers programs for the benefit of the nation’s war veterans and members of their families.
The National Military Family Association may be of interest to student veterans and their families.
The Department of Veterans Affairs maintains a database of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
