Military Friendly logo. For the sixth consecutive year, Victory Media has honored California University of Pennsylvania as a Military Friendly School, recognizing Cal U’s service and commitment to military service members, veterans and their families.

The 2015 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are most responsive to the needs of veterans and the military community.

“Cal U takes care of our student veterans and our active-duty service members,” says Capt. Robert Prah, director of the Office of Veterans Affairs at Cal U. “It’s what we do.

“We have been in their shoes, from inquiring and applying to Cal U through graduation and seeking employment. We are proud to serve as a resource for students, both on campus and online.”

The Military Friendly Schools® website features the list of designated schools, plus interactive tools and search functions to help military students find the college or university that best meets their needs. 

How Cal U serves

Cal U is a GoArmyEd provider of online education for Army personnel and their families. In addition, service members around the world are enrolled in degree programs through Cal U Global Online, where a dedicated military coordinator helps to integrate them into the University’s online learning community.

In 2012 and 2013, Cal U welcomed members of the active-duty military, reserve and National Guard as they strove to qualify for the German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge.

In addition to the recognition from Victory Media, Military Times EDGE ranks Cal U among the top schools in the nation for its commitment to helping military veterans pursue higher education.
