Chestnut Hill College is committed to making a private, post-secondary education affordable for all veterans and their dependents. The supportive and welcoming community here provides military students with an environment where they can advance their education and transition to the next chapter of their lives while being guided by advisors who understand the unique challenges faced by military students. Through resources available on campus, students have free access to mental health services, academic tutoring, and more. With a small student: faculty ratio, students have the opportunity to interact closely with their faculty instructors and advisors. They also have opportunities to connect with fellow veterans through the CHC Military Students Association. As with all of our Griffins, Chestnut Hill College is committed to supporting our military students as they prepare for their future.
Victory Media has consistently named Chestnut Hill College to their Military Friendly® Schools lists. “Post-secondary institutions earning the Military Friendly School award have exceptionally strong programs for transitioning service members and spouses,” said Daniel Nichols, chief product officer of Victory Media and a Navy Reserve veteran. “Our Military Friendly Schools are truly aligning their military programs and services with employers to help students translate military experience, skills, and training into successful careers after graduation.”
We are proud to say we are a participant of the Veteran’s Administration (VA) educational programs. We have been participating in the VA’s Yellow Ribbon Program since its implementation in August of 2009. Chestnut Hill College cannot determine a veteran’s eligibility for benefits. That is done through the Veterans Association. Apply for Benefits
