In addition, our Bristol, PA campus offers the Yellow Ribbon Program, which allows degree-granting institutions of higher learning to enter a voluntary agreement with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This agreement funds tuition exceeding the annual maximum cap for private schools. Pennco Tech can cover up to 50% of the expenses, while the VA matches our contribution. To qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Program, veterans must have a 100% benefit level. Further, we accept the Fry Scholarship offered by the V.A., and students are eligible if their spouse or parent passed away in the line of duty. *GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

I enjoyed all my teachers. They made it interesting and challenging. I enjoyed going back to school at the age of 48! Career Services was a big help to me. Danielle was great. She helped me with my resume and showed me how to apply. I got the job with Dietz and Watson! Pennco Tech was the right choice for me as I get ready to start my career.
