WELCOME VETERANS AND SERVICEMEMBERS
During each of the past four years, UW-Whitewater has proudly accepted the Military Friendly School designation by GI Jobs magazine. This designation is bestowed upon institutions which represent the top 15% of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide that are doing the most to embrace America's veterans as students and which have been determined to offer you and your spouse the best education value and welcome. More than 7000 schools in the U.S. were considered for the list. We continually strive to meet those high standards to best serve our student veterans and military personnel. Our goal as a campus community is to support you on your journey to become successful on campus, both academically and personally.
We are grateful for your service to our country and proud that you have chosen to learn more about our University to continue your educational and career goals. If you have any questions about UW Whitewater or the admissions process, please contact us!
