Daemen and SUNY Erie Educational Partnership for Student Veterans

Daemen College and SUNY Erie Community College (SUNY Erie) have formed a new educational partnership designed to provide student veterans and military aligned students a seamless transition from earning a SUNY Erie associate’s degree to completing a bachelor’s degree at Daemen. Under the new agreement, student veterans and military aligned students may apply to the dual admission program at the time of submitting their SUNY Erie application or before completing 30 credits. Students will be eligible for transfer admission into parallel degree programs at Daemen upon completion of a SUNY Erie associate’s degree and have also met the required minimum grade point average for admission to the college. Read the article about the partnership in the Daemen Voice or apply today at daemen.edu/apply.

“It is a tremendous honor to receive these national distinctions in recognition of our commitment to provide the best support, services, and resources to assist our student veterans in achieving academic and career success,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “We are proud to welcome student veterans into our college community and to offer them an exceptional educational experience.”

Religious Studies

I was in the U.S. Air Force for 6 years and after I got out I had the Post 9/11 GI Bill.  I called a couple of different local colleges who had a Religious Studies Major. Dr. Kelley has helped facilitate in depth and revealing research and drives me to learn more about my major even when I’m not in school.
