Mission Statement

Saint Ambrose University's Veterans Recruitment and Services office can ease your transition into college. We work with veterans, service members, and their dependents. We provide assistance with federal and state benefits and can connect you to campus and community resources. We'll also be your advocate and coordinate outreach to local schools, employers, and veteran service organizations.
A St. Ambrose University education equips you like no other - because St. Ambrose is a university like no other. You'll learn to think deeply, travel boldly, and use your abilities for the good of others. At. St. Ambrose, we don't wait for the future to arrive. We pursue it with everything we've got.
Yellow Ribbon Program
Through veteran's benefits and St. Ambrose's financial contribution, many veterans can take advantage of a private liberal arts education for free or at a very low cost.
A Dynamic Campus Life
We offer more than 60 majors with the flexibility to mix majors, minors, and electives to match your interests. What's more, our spirited community is known for its athletics, special events, and outstanding residence halls.
SAU students are inspired by our Catholic intellectual tradition and commitment to social justice. In fact, they volunteer thousands of service hours every year - and more than 150,000 hours in the past year alone!
