Year after year, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and the College of Business and Economics rank highly on Best for Vets and Military-Friendly lists. Our graduate business programs can help you transition the knowledge, skills, and experience you acquired in the military into a civilian career.
UW-Whitewater's Veteran Benefits Coordinator will be happy to provide specific details on veteran benefits to finance your degree program. Veterans, active duty service members and U.S. Army Reserve/National Guard members with qualifying active duty service are also eligible for a waiver of the $56 application fee through Graduate Financial Assistance by submitting a certification form signed by our Veteran Benefits Coordinator.
In addition, those who qualify for the application fee waiver will also qualify for streamlined admission into the Master of Business Administration, Master of Professional Accountancy or Master of Science in Finance programs. These individuals need only complete the online application and submit their transcripts, DD214 form or current assignment, and active military status certification to qualify for admission. (Contact us for the current active military status certification form.)
