The University of New Orleans: a Military-Friendly Institution

The University of New Orleans is committed to providing quality education for students with varying backgrounds, age, and experience. Our student population is remarkably diverse in many ways—for example, consider the age of the students in any UNO classroom, which can range from 18 to 70! The broad spectrum of knowledge and experience our students bring to their education fosters the kind of intellectual and cultural exchange that is essential to higher education. Your military experience contributes significantly to this diversity, making you a valuable member of our student community.
