Troy University has proudly served members of the United States Air and Army National
Guard for more than 50 years. Currently, in addition to working with members of the
Guard who are completing degree programs, the University also plays an active role
in the pre- and post- deployment Yellow Ribbon Re-integration Program.
The core goal of the partnership between the University and the Guard is to meet the
educational needs of our guardsmen and women by offering a broad range of associate,
bachelor and master degree programs through the four TROY Campuses in Alabama, the
university’s network of Student Support Centers and through TROY Online.
As a long standing partner with the United States Military, TROY serves students from
all Reserve components. The University also plays an active role in the pre-and post-deployment
Yellow Ribbon Re-integration Program. In each of the undergraduate degree options
available at TROY, there is scope for the award of transferable college credit based
on an evaluation of the member’s rating, the Joint Services Transcript (JST) and the
recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE). The ACE recommended credits,
combined with results of CLEP and / or DANTES exams taken, can significantly shorten
the timeframe for reaching degree completion.
With locations across the United States and through TROY Online, Reserve students
find the flexibility and support needed for success.
