The designation as a top military-friendly school is an endorsement of the hard work the College has applied to helping veterans begin or complete their higher education goals, whether they are seeking a bachelor's degree or a graduate degree from one of our programs, such as the Doctor of Physical Therapy or our MA in Education, said David Hawsey, vice president of enrollment management at the College. “Emory & Henry has a tradition of serving veterans and is fully supportive of veterans engaged in our academic community.”
Emory & Henry has been approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs as a member of the national Yellow Ribbon program. A veteran serves on the E&H admissions staff to provide personalized admission and transition counseling to veterans.

The College has long seen military service among its students and graduates as a highly important part of its historic commitment to communities and the country.
In addition, Emory & Henry’s rigorous academic programs are consistent with the values of discipline and hard work that are the mark of American military service.
