Military and Veterans

The qualities that have made your military service successful — integrity, competence, determination and discipline — make you an ideal candidate to succeed in college. Now is the perfect time to make the most of your talents, advance your career and prepare for your future by completing a degree or certificate program at St. Joseph's University, New York.

Bringing an Award-Winning Education to You

St. Joseph's University offers convenience along with a private education that U.S. News & World Report has ranked among the best in the New York Metropolitan area for the past decade. You can take courses where it best suits you: Online, at our campuses in Brooklyn and on Long Island, or at a military installation—Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn, Fort Wadsworth on Staten Island, the Jones Beach Coast Guard Station in Freeport, SFO Moriches in East Moriches and the Shinnecock Coast Guard Station in Hampton Bays. Check Off-Campus Course Offerings for information on current courses.
