Get the credit
St. Scholastica will work to make sure your past college course work counts toward your current educational goals.

St. Scholastica prides itself on being a veteran-friendly college. The College was named a Military Friendly School for 2018, and the College was also named a Military Friendly School for 2017. St. Scholastica has a Veterans Resource Center and coordinator who helps students maximize their educational benefits through the Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon programs.

Furthermore, St. Scholastica has a number of both graduate and undergraduate programs that are offered exclusively online.

With well-established roots in health care education, St. Scholastica continues to build on its reputation of excellence in this area.
