Why you should attend?

Veterans are generally eligible for benefits that more than cover WGU's low-cost 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. WGU offers many scholarship opportunities specifically designed for active-duty military service members, veterans, and/or their families.
