Military Services


Point Loma Nazarene University is committed to helping persons who have provided military service to our country in attaining their educational goals. In the military, you have gained invaluable experience and learned to think critically and strategically. PLNU’s undergraduate and graduate programs are designed to build on what you have already learned to help you grow personally and professionally.

At PLNU, we understand that your needs are not limited to the classroom. That’s why we advocate for a personal, well-rounded approach to education that recognizes the demands on your time and works to find balance. PLNU’s vibrant Christian community offers an environment that supports your unique strengths, provides quality education, and helps you succeed both in and out of the classroom.
