DePaul University > Admission & Aid > Veteran Student
DePaul welcomes students who have served our country as members of the armed forces. Our Office of Admission partners with colleagues in our Office of Veterans Affairs to help you make a seamless transition from military service to DePaul’s campus community.
Serving returning military members has been a priority here since World War II. As a proud member of the Yellow Ribbon Program – which provides tuition-free education to eligible students – DePaul doesn’t limit the number of veterans who can enroll in this program.
