Saint Joseph's College has worked with military students and their families since 1976. As a Military Friendly School, we are dedicated to serving those who serve our country. We were among the first institutions that started eArmyU, and have been a Navy Partner since its inception.


  • Earn your degree anywhere without taking time away from your family or from serving your country.
  • No campus attendance is required*.
  • Access online courses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Complete your coursework on your own schedule, even if you're deployed, while still submitting coursework regularly and meeting class participation requirements.

*Exceptions exist for our online nurse practitioner programs.

In addition to TA, you may also be eligible to use GI Bill® funds for your college education at Saint Joseph's College.

All eligible service members must receive approval from an Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within the Military Service prior to enrolling in a program with VA or TA benefits.
