Swarthmore College encourages applications from veterans, military service members, and their dependents. The College fosters a culture of civic engagement and public service, and our community welcomes and benefits from the perspectives of service members.

Swarthmore partners with Service To School’s VetLink program to support service members in the admissions process to selective colleges.  VetLink is a free service available to all U.S. veterans and military service members.

Veterans and active-duty service members do not need to pay the $60 application fee when submitting an admissions application to Swarthmore College.

The Registrar’s Office processes requests for U.S. Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits, and communicates with  the VA regarding enrollment certification. Our registrar, Martin Warner, is Swarthmore’s point  of contact for support services for veterans, military service members, and their families.

Swarthmore participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program. Please review the details about Swarthmore’s support services for veterans.
