Whether you are an active-duty service member or a student veteran, Southern New Hampshire University will help you continue your education. Admission, financial aid and benefit resources are just the beginning. As a college for veterans, SNHU will help you connect with your peers to ensure success in your academic career.
We understand the value of your military experience and we evaluate it as part of the admissions process, along with your previous academic achievements. Veterans apply through SNHU's Office of Transfer Admission whose job it is to ensure you get full credit for military training and education.
When military veterans apply to the traditional undergraduate day program in Manchester, NH, they are assigned to an admission specialist who is trained to meet the specific needs of military veterans. Academic records and military experience is actively considered in the admission process.

Veterans are eligible for valuable education benefits that provide financial assistance in pursuit of your degree. SNHU's dedicated school certifying officials are always available to review your bill and financial assistance.
Veterans must enroll in four courses per 16-week semester to qualify for full-time VA benefits. Per the VA's certification regulations, a non-matriculated student cannot be certified for educational benefits after two terms of attendance.
SNHU's Army ROTC Cadet Cadre offers students challenging and exciting training and leadership opportunities. When you participate in the ROTC program, you will build on your education at SNHU with formal classroom instruction, physical fitness and field and leadership training. Students who graduate from SNHU's Army ROTC program will be well-prepared to start their career in the armed services as a 2nd lieutenant.
In addition to educational opportunities, ROTC cadets become motivated leaders who are eligible for two- to four-year scholarships and all cadets receive a book allowance each semester. ROTC cadets receive a monthly stipend for their participation when they enroll in their junior and senior years. Students will be commissioned as a 2d Lieutenant on reserve or active duty when they successfully complete the program.
SNHU is proud of its student veterans and has worked with them, Veterans Affairs and organizations in the Manchester community to create The DeColfmacker Veterans Lounge. Located on our main Manchester campus, the lounge is a resource where veterans and service members can meet, study and relax. The lounge has room to study and socialize, with a television, movies, a Playstation 3 and complimentary coffee and soda.
The Veterans Lounge is also a resource for benefits and services available to student veterans at SNHU. Representatives from the Career Development Center and a Military Academic Advisor have regularly scheduled office hours in the Lounge.
SNHU is proud to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a provision of the new Post-9/11 GI Bill® that is meant to bridge the gap between these benefits and SNHU's on campus tuition and fees. Military veterans who have served on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001 and are attending school on campus are eligible to apply for this program.
