You serve our country. We serve you. Saint Martin's University is proud to be a member of the DoD Voluntary Education Partnership, an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) that ensures all service members participating in off-duty, postsecondary education programs are provided quality education programs uniformly. We have served the military community for over 40 years and continue our commitment by re-signing the DoD MOU and maintaining compliance with the Principles of Excellence set forth in the 2012 Executive Order 13607.

Saint Martin's is here for you

  • Total cost
    • Saint Martin's University agrees to provide students — prior to admission — a personalized form covering the total cost of an education program (i.e. program costs, student debt estimates, and federal financial aid options). 
    • Using the shopping sheet template from the Department of Education, the Student Financial Services Center has created a new award letter that provides a complete breakdown of costs and funding options.
  • Educational Plans
    • Saint Martin's University agrees to provide educational plans for all military and veteran education beneficiaries. 
    • Advisors from the various academic programs and the Center for Student Learning, Writing and Advising are available to assist veterans with developing a complete education plan for their educational goals. 
    • Career advising is available for veterans transitioning to the workplace through the Office of Career Development.
  • Recruiting techniques
    • Saint Martin's University does not support or condone fraudulent and aggressive recruiting practices regarding any students. The University will continue to uphold our high recruiting standards.
  • Accommodations for absence
    • Saint Martin's University agrees to provide accommodations for service members and reservists absent due to service requirements.
    • Saint Martin's University understands the pressures of deployment and the complexities of daily life. As a result, Saint Martin's has developed accommodations for both individual deployments and conditions beyond a student's control by offering the following withdrawal option:
    • University withdrawal appeal
    • Additionally, Saint Martin's University will allow service members and reservists to be readmitted to a program if they are temporarily unable to attend class or have to suspend their studies due to service requirements, provided satisfactory academic progress is being made by the service members/reservists prior to suspending their studies.
  • Refund policies
    • Saint Martin's University has aligned its refund policywith Title IV standards. The amount of aid a student receives will be determined by the percentage of the semester that the student has completed at the time of withdrawal.
    • For information about the tuition refund deadlines, please review the refund calendar.
