Military and Veterans
NUC University is staffed with professionals specialized in guiding the active military or military dependent student. The Institution is approved by the State Approving Agencies (SAA) to provide academic training to students under the various GI Bill® programs. This gave us the opportunity to qualify for the Military Friendly® certification, the only institution in Puerto Rico to obtain this designation in 2015.
Why is this important?
It is important to know that each of the administrative and academic processes has been evaluated to provide the best service to our active military and military dependent students.
How does it benefit you?
This procedure ensures for you a complete orientation on administrative processes, military benefits, and how our education is the right alternative to achieve your academic goals no matter where you are. Our main objective is to provide students with needed tools when making the major decision to study with us.
NUC University makes associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees available to active soldiers, their spouses, and dependents. Whether you’re interested in advancing your career in the military, starting or continuing studies to join the civilian workforce, or simply taking advantage of the benefits the GI Bill® provides to veterans. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) administers several financial assistance programs for active soldiers, reservists, National Guard soldiers and their dependents.
