Serving Those Who Serve
WGU Recognized as “Military-Friendly” and a “Top-School”
Students and alumni from our nation’s military community have said it repeatedly: WGU is a great educational option for men and women who serve. The university’s innovative, online model allows active-duty personnel and their families to earn high-quality and respected degrees wherever they are stationed. WGU’s degree programs are flexible and accessible and graduates gain knowledge and skills which help them achieve career success.
Again, the university has been commended for its significance to the military community, this time by two national magazines. Military Advanced Education & Transition (MAE&T) recently recognized WGU as a Top School for the tenth consecutive year. Additionally, for the sixth year in a row, Victory Media tabbed WGU as Military Friendly.
"There are many different variables by which you could evaluate an institution, but we focus on the best practices that have been asserted by various higher education groups and reinforced by veteran groups. These best practices assure students that they have a high chance of success and support at their school of choice," said Kelly Fodel, MAE&T's editor-in-chief.
Those honors are meaningful to WGU, because of the university’s strong commitment to helping foster better lives through education without the constraints of time and space. With approximately 10,000 students living in Washington, more current Night Owls call the Evergreen State home than any other state in the nation. Nearly 1,000 of WGU Washington’s current students about 10 percent are active-duty military personnel, dependent family members, or veterans.
More information about WGU Washington’s military and veteran benefits is found on the university’s website, as well as details regarding exclusive scholarship opportunities for active-duty and retired personnel, veterans, and military spouses and dependents.
