Thank you for your service, and welcome home to The Haven! 

Before being admitted to Lock Haven University, students should speak with their Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their military service.  

We are pleased that you are considering Lock Haven University and invite you to explore this site to learn more about the university and the resources and benefits available to you as a veteran or enlisted service member. 

We are committed to facilitating communication among our campus offices in order to serve student veterans, military service members, reservists, and their families with a coordinated system to provide a meaningful transition from the military to LHU to realize their full potential in academia, the workplace and in their social circle. 

Military Education Benefits

As a veteran, eligible dependent, or reservist you may be able to receive entitlement funding based upon a service obligation. The Financial Aid Office  of Lock Haven University makes every effort to ensure that service members receive all educational benefits they are entitled to.

Those students who have served in active duty as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces Division and who were discharged under any condition other than dishonorable would be considered a veteran. These students should answer “Yes” to the question on the FAFSA asking if the student is a veteran.

You will need to provide a copy of your DD214 to the Financial Aid Office to verify your veteran status in order to process federal aid.
