at Alfred University
Alfred University is dedicated to supporting military service members, veterans and dependents in their educational goals. Our veteran support team will assist in your transition to Alfred in any way they can, from health and wellness to academic services to assisting you with your VA education benefits.
As a student veteran, you may receive college credit for prior military school attendance and your military experience. This means that you may have a head-start on earning your degree, depending on the program and accepted credits. You may also be eligible for additional resources and financial aid through other scholarships and programs.
