PNC is a 2014 Military Friendly School
The 2014 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that welcome America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
PNC is a Veteran Friendly Campus
We know that veterans and current service members face unique challenges, and each person’s situation is different. At PNC we see you as an individual and will work with you to ensure that your education suits you and your career aspirations. PNC is committed to providing personalized student services. Your success is important to us.
Recognizing your service to country and the unique challenges that you may face as a result, PNC offers veterans and service members the opportunity to register for courses at the earliest possible date. Veterans and service members are eligible to register, along with graduating seniors, at the opening of registration.
Set Up a Campus Tour
You and your family members are welcome to visit PNC to see all that we have to offer. Chances are, you’ll have plenty of questions. That’s why you may choose to take a campus tour with a veteran who is a member of our PNC veterans organization. You can hear first-hand about a fellow veteran’s experience at PNC and ask questions about student and campus life.
The Bursar’s Office automatically puts a fee deferment in place for registered students certified as eligible for GI Bill educational benefits. This allows for additional time for these educational benefits to be applied to tuition and fees without worry of having class registration canceled if the GI Bill has not yet paid to a student’s tuition and fee statement prior to the start of the academic semester.
Veterans and active service members are encouraged to get involved in the many clubs and activities on campus. In turn, PNC offers a variety of activities and opportunities that are of specific interest to veterans and that help others on campus become more aware of our veterans and their contributions. Each year PNC hosts its annual Veterans Day ceremony and declares April as Veterans Awareness Month featuring guest speakers addressing a variety of veteran’s issues. Each academic year, PNC will plan additional activities of interest to veterans, the campus and surrounding community.
The Veterans organization was established to provide veteran-to-veteran support during the transition from military life to university life. The organization partners with PNC and the community to provide veterans with a forum to get together in an informal setting to network, make friends and support one another as students and as veterans. Membership includes men and women who represent all branches of the military, from current active members to VietNam-era veterans and from all walks of life. One of the popular events sponsored by the PNC Veterans organization is an annual Labor Day fundraiser. The Veterans organization office is located in the Dean of Students Office, LSF 131B.
