Military & Veterans

The relationship between Embry-Riddle and the military goes back to the 1920s, when the Army Air Corps taught John Paul Riddle to fly. Riddle returned the favor almost 20 years later during World War II by training thousands of Army Air Corps pilots, Naval aviators, and Royal Air Force and French pilots.

That tradition lives on today in our commitment to active-duty military and veterans.

In 2018, Embry-Riddle was named one the best schools for active-duty military and veterans for the fifth straight year in Military Advanced Education magazine’s Guide to Top Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities.

Our Worldwide Campus was also named No. 1 in the entire nation for Best Online Bachelor's Degree Programs for Veterans for 2020.
