WHY WE VALUE VETERANS
WGU is proud to support those who are currently serving our country, veterans, and their families. For 10 years running, Military Advanced Education & Transition Magazine has named WGU one of the nation’s “Top Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities.” So far this year, we have awarded nearly $1 million in scholarships to military and veteran students and their families. WGU could be the perfect fit for you, too.
Because WGU's tuition is affordable, veterans are generally eligible for benefits that more than cover the full cost of tuition, fees, and books. WGU's degree programs are approved for VA education benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill, and for tuition assistance for active-duty, reserve, and National Guard service members. This approval was granted after a rigorous review by the Department of Defense that affirms the quality of WGU programs. While WGU normally serves full-time students, part-time options are available for students using military tuition assistance to offer flexibility within a complex industry. WGU offers many scholarship opportunities specifically designed for active-duty military and veterans.
