U.S. News & World Report "Best Colleges for Veterans"

Marywood University offers the “Best Value” among Northern Regional Universities, according to the 2020 U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges ranking. Marywood was also one of only two regional institutions included in U.S. News “Best Colleges for Veterans” category. According to U.S. News, the “Best Value” ranking considers a school’s academic quality. The higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the deal. 


We provide support for accessing and using educational benefits, the transition from service to academics, and help students maximize both their military experience and education at Marywood when entering the civilian workforce. Additionally, the office offers assistance with accessing campus resources, hosts Veteran and service-related events, while also working closely with the Student Veteran Alliance, and the Division of Student Success to meet the needs of every student who enters our doors.
