Programs and Support for Military Students

Whether you're active duty, reserve or transitioning from service, our online degree programs build on your years of experience to help you accelerate your military career or prepare for life after service. The flexible, asynchronous courses allow you to pursue your degree from anywhere in the world, on your own time. Thanks to our affordable tuition, costs for most active military, veterans and dependents can be fully covered by military education benefits. 


Meet Our Students and Alumni

Major Leslie Rae Newton

The smaller class sizes may have been what attracted Maj. Newton to WCU but it was the flexibility and community she found that left a lasting impression. 


Chase Saunders

For this Student-Athlete and Military Dependent, using his family's benefits has allowed him to focus, on and off the field, without the worry of tuition.


Chris Sprenkle

As a veteran, the transition back to civilian life and college was eased by the one-on-one assistance provided by the Military Student Services staff.


Charles Smith

A WCU alumnus from the Class of '68 with a degree in  Business Administration, Charles was the Director of the NC Division of Veterans' Affairs for 22 years.
