Veterans and Military Personnel
In accordance with 38 USC 3679(e) Franklin Pierce University will not impose any penalty, including the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under Chapter 31 or 33.
In cooperation with the US Department of Veterans Affairs and the US Department of Defense, Franklin Pierce University participates in numerous Veterans’ benefits programs. Students who are eligible for Veterans benefits as determined by the Veterans Administration must contact the Office of Student Financial Services (OSFS) at the time of application.
Applications for Veterans’ benefits may be obtained directly from the Veterans’ Administration. A copy of your Certificate of Eligibility (COE) is required for verification and certification. Once you receive your Submit Certificate of Eligibility (COE) or 28-1905 (CH 31), submit a copy to OSFS.
Once you have enrolled in classes, you will need to complete Veteran Dependent Enrollment Certification Request, so that your certification can be processed by the Office of the Registrar. More information can be found at: http://eraven.franklinpierce.edu/s/dept/registrar/index.htm#vet-military.
Your military experience may be applied to college credit ultimately reducing the amount of time it may take you to complete your undergraduate degree.
Please arrange for your military transcripts to be sent to Office of Admissions. If you have college courses from any other regionally accredited institution, request an official transcript to be sent to the Office of Admissions for evaluation.
To assist you in navigating your way through the processes noted above and beyond, please refer to the Resources/Support website.
