Veteran and Military Services

Duquesne University is proud of its commitment to veterans and military service members who have served, and continue to serve this great nation. We remain dedicated to our mission that will nourish the mind, mend the heart and rejuvenate the spirit.

Serving military students at installations in the United States and abroad, Duquesne proudly serves those who serve. Our staff has been working with military students in peacetime and at war. We have experience with a variety of the scenarios you will face while fulfilling your commitment. Our Director of Veteran Services, himself retired Air Force, works with a variety of support agencies to ensure your transition to college is smooth, and you receive the attention you need as you matriculate through your plan of study.

A wide array of academic programs and services make Duquesne University more than simply military-friendly. There are a variety of degree options for you to consider, both on campus and online.

We understand the many benefit options available to today's active duty, guard or reserve veteran, and are ready to mobilize today's military students.

Learn how veterans and their families can get tuition waivers for all degree programs. These Veterans Services are available through the University Registrar.

"At Duquesne, we have a dedicated team that offers personalized service to each of the approximately 350 military and veteran students, ensuring a smooth transition from your first inquiry, through the application and registration process and throughout your time as a student.

The concept of others before self has served as our motto while we were in. Now it's time to place yourself first. Take the first step and inquire, then let us serve you." -- Don Accamando, Director of Veteran Services
