Office of Military and Veteran Services

The Office of Military and Veteran Services is here to help with the unique educational needs of our Veteran, current Military, and dependent students at Marywood University. We work with traditional, non-traditional, undergraduate, graduate, combat Veterans, non-combat Veterans, current service members, and dependent students alike. Marywood University has been recognized consistently for its commitment to veteran and active military students and is the only local institution that has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as a Best College for Veterans.

Resources for Student Veterans

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.
