U.S. Military Students

At St. Francis College, we're proud to welcome former and current members of the military to our community, whether you want to take classes before, after or in between tours of duty. We also offer opportunities to apply time spent in service towards your credit total.

Honorably discharged veterans or active-duty service members 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 (5) credits of elective requirements toward a degree; those who have completed more than 18 months of service be awarded 10 credits of electives.

Additionally, ACE equivalency credits may be granted with the submission of an official military (JST, AARTS, SMART, CGI) transcript.

Former and current military service members bring valuable perspectives, experiences and abilities to the St. Francis Community. We’re proud to offer several scholarships for this student group, including:

The Jeffrey Allen Clark Memorial Scholarship: The Jeffrey Allen Clark Memorial Scholarship was established by Mark ’73 and Marsha Clark in September 2017. This scholarship is intended for students with physical disabilities, veterans and/or first- or second=generation Americans. This is a partial scholarship.

Henry Family Veterans Scholarship: The Henry Family Veterans Scholarship, established by Bruce '72 and Patricia Henry in September 2017, is intended for student veterans and/or students from immigrant families who are first-generation to attend college. This is a partial scholarship.

George Reaney Veterans Award: The George Reaney Veterans Award was established by George’s son, Edward Reaney ’59 to honor his alma mater and his father. Through this award, Ed recognizes and celebrates St. Francis for changing his life and wants to ensure that future Terrier veterans and public servants have the same opportunity. This award is intended for veterans and public servants and is a partial scholarship.

Tom Brokaw Veterans Scholarship: Tom Brokaw, an honoree at SFC’s 53rd Annual Charter Award Dinner, is a passionate advocate for our veteran community. St. Francis College has established a scholarship in his name and will be awarded to student veterans as well as students from military families. This scholarship is a tribute to Tom's leadership and excellence in his field, as well as his steadfast support of those who serve and preserve the freedoms of this great nation. This is a partial scholarship.
