PACE STUDENT VETERAN ASSOCIATION
The Pace Student Veteran Association is a chapter of the national Student Veteran Association. This program connects Pace students together, specifically for those who have served in the military or support it. For student veterans, it offers a comfortable setting and welcomes them with the comradery experienced by all members of the US Armed Services. The SVA offers advice to Pace veterans regarding their educational benefits, military records, and other matters. Its goal is to make it easier for veterans to transition from the military to civilian life and to support their academic and professional achievements.
Once a month, Pace holds Accelerated Admission Days for veteran, reservist, and active duty military applicants. Pace staff will prioritize guiding military applicants through the processes to accelerate applications.
