"I was so excited to find out that Creighton is an incredibly military friendly school, I was immediately put in touch with advisors and counselors who helped me get enrolled and set up for success."

Creighton University has a reputation for excellence—not only in education but also for service and support to military students, their spouses and dependents.

Our Office of Military and Veterans Affairs will do all we can to make it as easy as possible for you to use your education benefits at Creighton. We are here to answer your questions and address your concerns—before you begin classes and throughout your academic journey here. It’s one of the many reasons we’re consistently designated a Military Friendly School®.

Many students benefit significantly from our participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides additional financial assistance to eligible Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) students.

The majority of our undergraduate students using the Post-9/11 GI Bill along with our Yellow Ribbon Program have their tuition and fees paid in full by these benefits. Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon eligibility are determined by the VA. 

We proudly extend tuition discounts* to:

  • Active duty service members and dependent family members
  • Department of Defense civilians and dependent family members
  • Department of Defense civilian contractors and dependent family members
  • Military Reservists
  • National Guard members
  • Non-Appropriated Funds (NAF) employees
  • Retired military
