Veterans and active duty military
In appreciation of your service
Whether transitioning to a new career or seeking education to advance within the military, Stritch has helped veterans and active duty personnel succeed. Stritch participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program so we can help an unlimited number of active-duty personnel and veterans continue their education.
We also offer the Stritch Military Grant. It is awarded to full-time undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students who are in active military duty, veteran(s) or have proof of an honorable discharge, and to students who are married to an individual currently deployed. Eligible students can receive up to a 25% tuition reduction.

Who should file a FAFSA?
All U.S. citizens and permanent residents seeking to earn an undergraduate or graduate degree are eligible to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Office of Financial Aid will rely on this information to locate grants, loans, and need-based scholarships to help you fund your education. International students should not file the FAFSA.
Should I submit an admissions application first?
Yes. New students should submit an application for admission before starting the financial aid process. This helps our counselors locate additional scholarships and grants based on your academic performance, affiliations, and financial need. Apply online: www.stritch.edu/apply
