Military and Veterans Admissions

Serving those who serve us

At Park University, we have a long history of serving the U.S. military. We’re nationally recognized as a leader in education for service members, veterans and their families.

We provide an environment of support for service members and veterans transitioning in and out of the military through our Global Warrior Center as well as flexible schedules and a number of convenient locations.

In addition to our flagship campus in Parkville, Missouri, you can study at one of 40 campus centers nationwide, 35 of which are on military installations. You can also complete your degree entirely, or partially, online – from anywhere in the world.

Affordable. Accessible. Maximum benefits.

At Park University, you can maximize the educational benefits you’ve earned with your service. We offer generous credit for military training and experience. We evaluate your Joint Service Transcript (or equivalent) and award you up to 75 hours of college credit. If you’re currently serving, you can take advantage of a reduced tuition rate.


Park University will review your transcripts for military experience to determine how many transfer credits apply based on recommendations from the American Council on Education.

“Knowing I had 36 credits toward my degree from my experience was a great first step. That made choosing Park University an easy decision.”
