Veterans & Active Duty Military
Thank you for your service!
Pennsylvania Highlands is designated as a military friendly college and we are determined to make the Admissions process for veterans as seamless as possible.
Student Services at Penn Highlands provides veterans with:
- assistance throughout the admissions process,
- academic advising,
- evaluation of prior learning for credit (military service, basic training, prior training, etc.),
- information and guidance regarding financial aid including available veterans benefits,
- a pre-registration period to help you get the courses you need, and
- assistance with transcript management and registration if called into duty.
Our veterans, active duty military students and authorized family members are eligible to receive sponsored tuition rates. Depending on the student, documentation will be required such as a DD214, active duty orders, or other appropriate documentation.
Credit for Military Service & Beyond
Many of our veteran students gain credits at other colleges and universities throughout their careers. We encourage you to have your official transcripts mailed to the Registrar's Office so that we can review them for transfer credit. Mail your transcripts to: Pennsylvania Highlands Community College, Registrar's Office, 101 Community College Way, Johnstown, PA 15904.
Don't forget you military transcript! This link provides information and the ability to have your military transcript sent electronically to Pennsylvania Highlands: https://jst.doded.mil/. The transcripts will be evaluated and appropriate credits will be transferred.
