Director's Message

“As a U.S. Army veteran, I experienced firsthand the challenges of obtaining a college degree. My undergraduate program was interrupted several times for deployments to active duty, and I transferred to three different colleges before finally earning my degree. During that time, I learned that many schools were unprepared for the unique challenges that veterans face.

For that reason, I am excited to welcome you to Stockton University. From the beginning, Stockton has focused on helping military students succeed and, since 2009, we have had an office and staff dedicated exclusively to that goal. We also have veterans on the faculty and staff throughout the university, so you can be confident that we know what it takes to help you succeed.

I invite you to connect with us and discover the many ways that we can assist you. You have served your country; now it’s our chance to serve you”.
