California University of Pennsylvania has been honored as a 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School, recognizing Cal U’s commitment to military service members, veterans and their families.

The military-friendly ranking is designed to help service members and their dependents make the best use of federal benefits, including the Post-9/11 GI Bill®, by selecting a college where they can acquire the education needed to pursue a civilian career.

Cal U received the designation for the first time in 2010.

The university serves more than 600 students who are active military members, veterans or their family members.

Cal U’s Office of Military and Veterans Affairs assists these students with academic advising, career guidance and information about financial aid.

An active Veterans Club offers opportunities for networking and community service.

“Our office provides a one-stop place to assist any military-related person as they pursue a degree from Cal U, whether they are taking classes on campus or 100% online,” said Maj. Robert Prah, director of the Office of Military and Veterans Affairs.

Cal U participates in the Military Family Education Program, which allows Pennsylvania Army or Air National Guard members to attend the university tuition-free. The university also is a member of the National Association of Veterans Program Administrators and the Pennsylvania State System Veterans Advisory Network.
