The 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 is one of only two regional universities recently ranked among “Best Colleges for Veterans” (Regional Universities North). According to U.S. News, these are the top-ranked schools in the 2020 Best Colleges rankings that participate in federal initiatives helping veterans and active-duty service members pay for their degrees. Among the Regional Universities North, Marywood University was also more successful than others at advancing social mobility by enrolling and graduating large proportions of students who were awarded Pell Grants.


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.
