Military and Veterans

Our Commitment to the Military

Military and Veterans at Embry-RiddleWe have worked with service members since 1970. Backed by an international reputation for academic excellence and a commitment to serve you, Embry-Riddle Worldwide takes pride in our relationship with the military. 

We understand the challenge in balancing academic goals with military duties and family obligations, and we do everything possible to help you succeed.

"Embry-Riddle Worldwide has a long-standing commitment to our service men and women, both active-duty and veteran, and takes pride in being able to offer them degrees that are of the highest academic quality and that are sought after by employers in the aviation and aerospace industry," said Dr. John R. Watret, Chancellor for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide.

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.

In 1970, Embry-Riddle Worldwide offered its first courses at Fort Rucker and currently operates campuses on military installations around the world.
