WCU Military student holding WCU Flag



Western Carolina University is committed to providing exemplary support to members of the military and veterans, their spouses, and their college-aged children. We provide one-on-one admissions and financial aid counseling to ensure our military students are able to maximize their benefits and receive a high-quality, affordable education. We offer undergraduate and graduate programs at our main campus in Cullowhee, in Asheville at Biltmore Park, and online for those stationed around the globe. 

In addition to certifying eligible recipients for military and veteran education benefits, the Military Student Services staff will provide information and referral services, help you select the right program for your situation, connect you with other military students, and help you balance school requirements with military obligations. WCU is home to top-ranked programs in fields ranging from emergency and disaster management to emergency medical care to criminal justice.
