With Armed Forces Day this Saturday, May 18, 2013, we are proud to present three ways in which we honor our military students. Created in 1949 and first observed in 1950, Armed Forces Day is celebrated annually on the third Saturday of every May and recognizes and honors the five military branches: the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard.
1. Graduation Teams Experienced in Working with Military Students
At South University, all military students, veterans and spouses of service members will have a team of dedicated admissions, financial aid and advising representatives trained in and focused on meeting your needs as a military student.
2. University Credit for Your Military Experience
We want to recognize your extensive military training and experience. Once you submit the paperwork, we’ll review your experience and training to determine your eligibility for credit toward your academic program. This transfer of credit could help you to cut expenses and graduate in less time.
