St. Andrews is aware of the transitional nature of the military lifestyle.

Hence, we’re committed to creating an academic environment where credit transfers are easy and experience and training credits are evaluated for military students across the nation.

In addition, St. Andrews participates in the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges Consortium (SOCC) and Yellow Ribbon program, which honors the top 20% of colleges, universities, and trade schools that are committed to supporting veterans.

Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon Program is designed to help students avoid up to 100 percent of their out-of-pocket tuition and fees associated with education programs that may exceed the Post 9/11 GI Bill® (a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at tuition benefit. The recently enacted GI Bill® funds tuition expenses at the highest public in-state tuition rate. By participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program, St. Andrews can provide qualified veterans tuition discounts. This allows veterans greater flexibility in choosing where to use their education benefits under the GI Bill®.
