Military

St. Francis College has a strong track record in serving members of the military with many students taking classes before, after and in-between tours of duty. Time spent in service can even be applied towards a student's credit total.

Credit for Armed Forces Veterans
Honorably discharged veterans who have completed 6 to 18 months of active service in either the U.S. Armed Forces or those of another country may be granted five credits of the elective requirements toward a degree; those who have completed more than 18 months of service may be granted 10 credits of the elective requirements. Appropriate documentation must be submitted to the Office of the Academic Dean.
