What Makes Grace College a “Military Friendly” School?

For over two years now, Grace College and Seminary has been a military friendly school.  This means that the college’s administration has chosen to actively recruit and retain military students in a number of ways.   Grace accepts all forms of the Montgomery GI Bill and the Post 9/11 GI Bill, in addition to offering credit for CLEP and ACE exams.  It offers a flexible degree program, called GOAL, which offers students a chance to earn their Bachelor’s degree in Management while still being able to pursue their responsibilities (like a military career) full time.  Furthermore, Grace offers the Yellow Ribbon Scholarship Program, which will cover the remainder of an eligible student’s tuition after their Post 9/11 GI Bill is applied to their account.
The college’s Veteran’s Affairs Student Services Team has been comprised of faculty and staff from a number of different campus offices.  Each of these team members is enthusiastic about aiding military students, and each has a helpful set of resources to offer military students.There are currently thirty-two military students at Grace College and Seminary, among them veterans, dependents, and reservists.   As Admissions steps up its recruiting efforts towards military members and accepts new military students, I would like to encourage you to come and take an active part in Grace’s military community.  I assure you that whatever your military-education position, you will not be disappointed by the benefits which have been made available to you.

Even though Grace College VA Student Services considers that a solid foundation has been laid for a strong military program, we are not finished yet.  We will continue to add to the services and benefits that we currently offer.  Our goal is to both grow our military student body, and to better enhance the college experience that we offer to those who have proudly served our country.

    Yet another aspect of Grace College’s politic that I respect. It’s commendable that the college recognizes and tolerates students who have chose to advance in the military field, as not many other educational institutions offer such opportunity.recognizes and tolerates students who have chose to advance in the military field, as not many other educational institutions offer such opportunity.
