Military Friendly Schools 2017 logo

Cal U has been recognized as a 2017 Military Friendly® School, a designation that recognizes the University’s service and commitment to military service members, veterans and their families.

The designation is awarded annually by Victory Media, publisher of G.I. Jobs®, STEM JobsSM and Military Spouse magazines.

It is designed to help service members and their families make the best use of the Post-9/11 GI Bill and other federal benefits by selecting a college where they can acquire the education needed to pursue a civilian career.

Cal U has received the designation each year since 2010.

Office of Military and Veterans Affairs

Nearly 200 military veterans attend classes on Cal U’s campus, and more than 500 service members around the world are enrolled in Global Online, Cal U’s Internet-based learning community.

The Office of Military and Veterans Affairs assists these students and their families with academic advising, career guidance and information about financial aid.

It even has computers equipped with military ID card readers, to make it simpler for student service members to register for correspondence classes or travel vouchers.

An active Veterans Club offers opportunities for networking and community service.

“Our office is the place that any military-related person on this campus can come to for help,” says Capt. Robert Prah ’06, ‘10, the office’s director.

Cal U Global Online, the University’s 100% online learning community, offers a tuition discount for active-duty military, veterans and their families. The office works closely with service members, including those who are studying online during deployments.

“Whether they are studying on campus or online,” Prah says, “California University of Pennsylvania is committed to providing services and support to all members of our military family.”
