Supporting Veterans and Active Military

National University has a proud history of supporting our United States veterans, and we continue to build on that history today. After World War II, National was home to the very first VFW post on a professional degree college campus. Today, we are home to many men and women who have served in our armed forces. You can find them in our student body, our administration, or on our faculty and staff. 

General Benefits
