Veterans and Military-Affiliated Students

The University of Pennsylvania is committed to supporting our veteran and military-affiliated students. If you are an active duty servicemember, veteran, or a military-affiliated dependent, you may be eligible for education benefits offered through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
