Herzing University proudly supports America's veterans, active-duty military personnel and their spouses. Transitioning from military life to civilian life can be a challenging journey, and veterans must have access to educational and career opportunities. At Herzing, we are committed to serving you with the same integrity you served your country, providing the education and support services you need to help you pursue and achieve the success you deserve.
Herzing University offers an unwavering commitment to supporting veterans in pursuing higher education and successful careers; our history is rooted in it. The first Herzing campus was founded in 1965 by Henry Herzing, a proud veteran of the U.S. Navy. The strength, diligence, and determination he brought from the service to higher education set the standard we work to uphold every day. We believe that you served us and now it is our opportunity to serve you!
