Our staff, faculty and students are committed to providing a welcoming atmosphere to all students. Veterans are no exception.

At Pitt-Titusville, we also try to make sure you have access to all the support you may need in your transition from soldier to student. If you have served our country in the Active Duty Military, the Reserves or the National Guard you may be eligible for education benefits. Under certain circumstances, spouses and children of veterans may also be eligible for education benefits. If you have questions, please feel free to contact our VA certifying official/director of the financial aid, Melissa Ibanez,  at uptaid@pitt.edu (814-827-4495).

Please note that the Veterans Administration may require extra time to process new applications for education benefits. It is very important to begin the application process well in advance of the term in which you are planning to enroll.
