You’ve given the country your best.
You deserve our best.

Whatever branch of the military you’ve served in, your courage, discipline and drive is an inspiration to all of us. That’s why we at Saint Rose are proud to be a veteran-friendly school—named to the Military Friendly School list for nine consecutive years and counting — and one that goes above and beyond to give you support, resources and a community of peers.

  • We accept up to 15 transfer credits for military training, which includes PE credit from basic training.
  • We are an approved work site for the VA Work Study Program, where eligible students can earn an additional $8,000 per academic year by doing work helping other military family members.
  • Saint Rose is an anchor site for FourBlock, a national nonprofit program that helps veterans fine-tune their career skills and enlists companies eager to hire them. In the past, companies such as Amazon and Ayco have worked with our veterans.

"Saint Rose afforded me a great learning experience, letting me effectively utilize my GI Bill and the College's Yellow Ribbon Program to pursue college tuition free. Through their cooperation with the VA, I not only obtained my undergraduate degree in business but got my MBA. I highly recommend that veterans maximize their GI Bill at Saint Rose. Being “military friendly” is more than just a slogan to the college; they are taking real steps to make sure vets are successful members of the community."
