For the tenth year in a row, we were named a
Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine. The list honors the top colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s veterans as students.
Our staff, faculty, and students are committed to providing a welcoming atmosphere to all students. Veterans are no exception. Student veterans can and should join the on-campus Vet Club. This club offers vet students a place to meet with like-minded students who have experienced life outside of the classroom. Each fall semester, a Veteran's Day breakfast is held to acknowledge and appreciate those who have served.
Also, veterans beginning with the graduating class of 2014, wear red, white, and blue cords in recognition for their military service during our graduation ceremony.
At Pitt-Bradford, we also make sure you have access to all the support you may need in your transition from soldier to student. Please also see our
Support Page for links to information and services for our veterans.
If you have served our country in the Active Duty Military, the Reserves or the National Guard you may be eligible for education benefits. Under certain circumstances, spouses and children of veterans may also be eligible for education benefits. One of our veteran representatives is available to help you file all documentation related to the GI Bill®. You can contact
Bob Dilks Jr., director of transfer and nontraditional student recruitment at
firstname.lastname@example.org (814-362-7693) or Melissa Ibanez, director of the financial aid office at
