Honoring our Military

Peirce College was founded as a business school to help Civil War veterans reintegrate into the workforce. We have a long-standing commitment to military service members. That’s why, every year, hundreds of military personnel, their families and dependents choose Peirce College to complete their education.

Peirce honors those who protect and serve our country, and specializes in serving their academic needs. With 100% online degree programs, we make it easy to continue your studies while you’re working or on active duty. If you’re located in the Philadelphia region, you have the option to take your classes at our Center City campus, or mix and match – whatever works best for you.

Through the Peirce Protect & Serve Grant, service members, and their spouses and dependents can receive 25% off tuition. Additionally, each year the College awards five full-tuition scholarships to active National Guard members through the Peirce National Guard Scholarship Competition. Our military students are also eligible for other scholarships and financial aid. Explore your options here.

Did you know that your military experience could gain you college credit? The first step to claiming the credits is to request a transcript from your military branch. Peirce will review the transcripts and provide you with a credit evaluation. Find out more about earning credit for experience or contact an Admissions Representative at 1.888.467.3472, ext. 9000.
