Veterans Education

Thank you for your service. We are honored that you are considering the University of Jamestown. We look forward to guiding you through the enrollment process. During the process, you will be provided a Veteran Orientation session to learn more about financial aid benefits exclusive to you. We will also provide you with a student Veteran information packet with various resources.

As you begin your education journey with the University of Jamestown, we invite you to attend the University of Jamestown virtual orientation. Here you will get an overview of our services for active military, veterans, and family members.

Connect with your student admissions team if you have questions prior to enrollment or anywhere along your education process.

Transfer Training and Credit For Prior Learning

Your service and previous military student experience may mean that you have already earned potential college credits. The University of Jamestown team will work with you so we can maximize your prior learning. Our team will assist with how to access transcripts from previous college and university experiences you have. Your experience and education history may be worth up to sixty transfer credits.

Preparing for the discussion:

The evaluation of your military service transcripts will include a review of the following resources. The University of Jamestown team will request the official transcripts. However, you may verify what courses you have taken by reviewing your unofficial transcripts.

Air Force

You can review your unofficial transcripts from the Community College of the Air Force / Air University here.

Army / Marines / Navy / Coast Guard

Joint Service Transcripts can be reviewed here.

DD214 Evaluation

It will be important that you provide the University of Jamestown team with your DD214 for evaluation.

Military Service Tuition Assistance Benefits

Our admissions and military financial aid team will assist you with the application and tuition assistance process. The following is an overview of the process and potential military tuition assistance (TA) programs.

If you are currently serving in the military, you may be eligible for funding offered through the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance program. Check your eligibility status and the amount you qualify with your Service before enrolling.


We can help accelerate your process.
