Military & Veterans

Everyone was mighty suprised to see that I received a care package from my school. I can ensure you that RMU is one of very few universities that support soldiers overseas. It is greatly appreciated. – Dustin Grabowski, BSBA'12

Robert Morris University is a military-friendly school. Our intent is to provide quality education and assist with bridging the financial gap between your benefits and the cost of education. RMU participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program for veterans that have been awarded 100% benefits for their post 9/11 veterans education benefits. For those veterans that have less than 100% post 9/11 benefits, RMU has a Military Service Award to help close the financial gap. The post 9/11 veterans education benefits provide tuition and fees for veterans equal to the tuition and fees for a state public university. At RMU, we believe that veterans are entitled to a private education as well.

For more information, please contact Brigadier General (Ret.) Daniel Rota, Ph.D., director of veterans education and training services, at or (412) 397-5424. You may also contact Heather Jericho, certifying official, at or (412) 397-5498.
