Graduate Military and Veterans
Pursue an advanced degree at Pfeiffer, where advanced academic challenges are coupled with real-world experience. Our graduate students experience exceptional hands-on internships, individual instruction, and career preparation. Students with experience in the Reserves, National Guard or other Armed Forces may be eligible for college credits.
Pfeiffer University has a strong history of welcoming and supporting active-duty and veteran military students. We accept ACE military credits and Prior Learning Credits. Additionally, Pfeiffer limits academic residency to no more than 25 percent of the degree requirements for all undergraduate degrees for active-duty service members. Academic residency can be completed at any time while active duty service members are enrolled. Reservists and National Guardsmen on active duty are covered in the same manner.
VA Benefit Programs & Eligibility
Generally, veterans have 10 years from the date they were last released from active duty to use their educational benefits. The Post 9/11 GI Bill® allows 15 years. Spouses generally have 10 years from the date they are found eligible. Children of veterans are generally eligible from age 18 until age 26.
