At Drexel, we are pleased to offer you and other veterans like you well-deserved educational benefits to honor the sacrifices you have made during your or your family's military career. The opportunity for veterans and their families to meet their educational goals is as much of a priority for Drexel's faculty and staff as it is for our current student veterans themselves.

We understand that the transition from the military to a college campus can be challenging in many ways. Be assured that every office on Drexel's campus is available to assist in helping you achieve your academic goals.

Below are resources that will help you learn more about Drexel, as well as some other information that will be helpful in using your educational benefits.
