Veteran and Military Personnel Information

Franklin Pierce University welcomes veterans; we are here to help you determine if you qualify for veteran education benefits. Franklin Pierce University is approved by the NHSAA Office to administrate VA Educational Benefits for eligible students. The VA makes eligibility determinations and students that believe they may be eligible for benefits under the GI Bill® should seek determination from the VA.

We will be happy to assist you with all the facets of your relationship with Franklin Pierce, from inquiry to graduation. We are approved to accept veteran's educational benefits, abide by the Principles of Excellence, and invite credits from non-collegiate sources such as the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the American Council on Education ( ACE).

Getting Started is Easy!

1If you have received benefits while attending a previous institution, submit a "Request for Change Program or Place Training" (VA Form 22-1995).
2Once the VA has reviewed your application for benefits, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility or your Notice of Basic Eligibility. Please submit a copy of either to your admissions counselor.

Your military experience could possibly 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 Franklin Pierce University Office of Admissions. If you have college courses from any other regionally accredited institution, simply request for an official transcript to be sent to the Franklin Pierce University Office of Admissions for evaluation of transfer credits. Once you have provided Franklin Pierce University with your transcripts, please complete a Credit for Prior Learning/Training Student Acknowledgement Form. Military spouses interested in credit for prior knowledge and expertise gained through life/work experience can learn more through LearningCounts Partners With Department of Defense.

Also, to assist you in navigating your way through the processes noted above and beyond, please refer to our Resources/Support listing.
