Why Attend Worcester State University

Worcester State University welcomes our student veterans. You have provided a very noble and crucial service to all of us, and for that, we thank you. We are committed to helping you meet your educational needs by providing you with information, services, and support. Once a Veteran has been accepted to WSU and certified their benefits, the Director of Military Affairs/Veterans Services will assist you in your transition to the academic environment and assist you through on-campus and off-campus resources. Our aim is to insure that our Veterans are successful in completing the requirements as degree seeking students.
