Continue Your Mission at Stritch

As a private Catholic university participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program, we can help an unlimited number of veterans. The Military Education Program, working in cooperation with the American Council on Education (ACE) and the Department of Defense (DOD), assists service men and women in achieving recognition for college-level learning acquired in military life. The University will evaluate and award credit from the military (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, and Department of Defense) by applying Stritch transfer credit policies to ACE credit recommendations. Speak with one of our admission counselors today!
