Military & Veterans

We deeply value the service and sacrifice of veterans and their families. Recognized as a Military Friendly School® for 2019-20 by Viqtory Media, based on our strong support for veterans and their dependents, Whitworth University is proud to accept and honor all veteran educational benefit programs.

You've sacrificed a lot to earn your benefits. We respect that, and that's why we're committed to helping guide you through the process. As a recipient of the Partners for Veteran Supportive Campuses Certificate through the Washington State Department Veterans Affairs, we are dedicated to supporting your success. We offer our veterans:

  • Admissions and financial aid counseling
  • One-on-one academic advising
  • A dedicated veterans' lounge
  • A military-friendly community
  • Peer veteran support

If you are a military-connected student and do not plan on using your benefits, please follow the admissions instructions outlined on the academic program of your interest. If you plan to use VA benefits at Whitworth, check out our VA Student Checklist for a step-by-step guide to getting started.
