How Accommodating to Veterans is Erskine?
Check out what Erskine College has to offer their veteran students, below.
Should I go to a Veteran Friendly School?
The best colleges for veterans offer on-campus services and career and counseling support for military veterans. These help you to have the most successful career as a student and veteran at Erskine College.
For Veterans, There Might be Better Options than Erskine College
Overall, Erskine College performs poorly on our ranking of the Best Colleges For Veterans (#1,704), but the factors that we think are important to veterans might not apply in your situation.
According to the VA, there are 14 Post-9/11 G.I. Bill® recipients at Erskine. Note, this figure does not include any active duty military personnel that are attending this college via Tuition Assistance, so the total military population is potentially larger than this.
A large number of veterans attending a college means the college and faculty are more used to supporting and accommodating the needs of veterans.
Are you looking for more information about military tuition assistance programs such as the G.I Bill® or Yellow Ribbon Program?
Federal Program Participation
Several federally funded groups set standards for colleges educating service members. Erskine College participates in two of them. Involvement in these programs plays a key role in helping us determine how good an option a college is for veterans.

Credit for Other Experience
Don't accept a credit decision like it is an order from your commander that must be followed. There is usually a process at most colleges to appeal any transfer credit acceptance decision. If you can convince the school that your previous class is similar enough to a class at their school you can often get them to change their decision. Spending an hour or so doing that can save an entire semester's worth of work and money.
