Serving Our Military and Veteran Students

We appreciate and care for our service members and veterans.

At University of Fairfax, we recognize what U.S. military men and women do for our country. We are committed to helping our military students, honorably discharged veterans, their spouses and their families develop the skills and knowledge needed to pursue opportunities in the fastest-growing career field: cybersecurity.


Since 2004, online delivery of our programs has made the University's programs accessible to professionals worldwide and has even enabled faculty members and students on active military duty to participate.

President Longaker shares how University of Fairfax strives to help fellow Veterans



"We've always believed that those who have served our country deserve more."

Specifically, we support our military and veteran community in the following ways:


An Environment of Understanding & Support — UoF is a veteran-led and managed institution.


Military Training & Education — Earn credit for your military schools and experience, or test out of courses.


Transfer Credits — If you have already begun your studies elsewhere, or if you hold a diploma or degree from another college or university, you will find that UoF makes transferring credits simple so that you can get a head start on your career program.


Exclusive Military Grants — Our Blue Ribbon Grant awards up to $18,000 in additional financial support to qualified current former military, Guard/ Reserve, and dependents. The Armed Services Recognition Grant (up to $5,000 per 5 terms) assists eligible military service member students, their spouses, and their children to help minimize out-of-pocket expenses.


Locations that Work — Online programs designed to fit your lifestyle and fit earning a degree into your busy schedule.

Military-Friendly — We have been named a "Military Friendly School" by Victory Media, and Military Advanced Education's Top Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities.
