Military and Family Members
Named a Military-Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine for the third year in a row, Providence College works hard to help servicemembers and their spouses complete their bachelor's, associate's and certificates. Our advisers understand the unique needs of military families and take the time to walk you through every step of the college enrollment process.
Tuition Benefit Programs
We participate in the Montgomery GI Bill, Post-9/11 GI Bill, and MyCAA tuition benefit programs and offer excellent benefits counseling for our military students. For detailed information, please visit Veterans and Dependents Benefits at Providence College.
To receive Veterans Benefits, you must present an Application for Education Benefits Form 22-1990; or if you have received benefits from a previous school, just notify Enrollment Services.
When you register for class in the School of Continuing Education, please indicate you are to receive veteran benefits by checking the appropriate box on the registration form.
Enrollment verification is done after the second week of school. You may expect to receive your first check approximately two months after the semester begins. If you decide to drop or add a course, please contact a Certifying Official in Enrollment Services since the College must notify the Veterans Administration as to when your amount of credits changed. Contact Donna Cairo at
401‐865‐2982 or email@example.com, or Donna Barricelli at 401‐865‐2367 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may be eligible to receive credit for military and other forms of professional training that are approved by the American Council on Education (ACE). You may also earn credit for prior learning through standardized tests such as the College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) or the DSST (DANTES), which are offered in many different subject areas and are administered throughout the country.
