Brandman is exceptionally proud of its commitment to military education. 38% of our undergraduate students - and 26% of all our students - have ties to the military (active, reserve, veterans, or dependents). The university offers reduced military tuition rates to active military students and their dependents, and students can receive academic credit for their military experience. We have campuses on 6 military bases in California and Washington. Additionally, Brandman is a proud participant in AUABC, GEM, MyCAA, NCPDLP, Troops to Teachers, and the Yellow Ribbon Program.
