  • Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC)

    Saint Francis has participated in an Army ROTC program for many years in partnership with the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Beginning in 2009, Saint Francis students could fully participate at SFU without having to travel to IUP to participate in all ROTC activities. Participating students may be eligible to receive full tuition scholarships. Unlike many other institutions, Saint Francis will award ALL students that successfully complete the ROTC curriculum with a Minor in Military Science to accompany your Major concentration in any curriculum.

  • Top Military Friendly School

    Did you know that Saint Francis University has been named a Military Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine for a third consecutive year?

    SFU ranks in the top 15% of all colleges, universities & trade schools nationwide for the certifications, programs, policies and financial efforts it uses to recruit and retain military students.
