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.
