Since 1865 Rider University has opened its doors to veterans and military service members. One of our proudest historical facts is that Civil War veterans comprised most of Rider?s inaugural class. Today, our University continues to serve service members, veterans, and their beneficiaries in reaching their goal of starting or continuing their education. Rider is also honored to be a Yellow Ribbon University. Rider is known for its professional preparation, leadership development, student-centered environment and small class sizes. We take care in guiding students through academic advising, registration and career services.Rider offers more than 60 undergraduate and graduate programs

Services provided by the Veterans and Military Affairs Coordinators include assisting students in applying for educational benefits for veterans and veterans' dependents, certifying school attendance to the regional VA office, maintaining individual students’ files, and reporting to regional and state VA offices.
