Dedication. Responsibility. Leadership.

Fairfield University is grateful to our veterans for their service to our country and is honored to assist them in achieving their higher education goals. As a Jesuit institution, we value the dedication, responsibility, and leadership exemplified by these individuals during their military service and appreciate the remarkable qualities they bring to our undergraduate and graduate communities.

As a University, we are committed to identifying the unique academic and personal needs of our veterans, as well as supporting their educational pursuits. If you have question regarding financial aid and admission, or need assistance transitioning into college, we’re here to help.
