Webster and Military Education

Webster University opened its first military campus location in 1974, and since then has provided unmatched educational programs to U.S. military personnel on the installations where they work and live for more than 40 years.

Webster has quickly and consistently established itself as a leader in military education—recognized as a "military-friendly" and "vet-friendly" educational institution. Also a VA Yellow Ribbon participant, Webster has assisted military students in making their educational dreams come true.

The University's distinguished record of top tier rankings in U.S. News and World Report, GI Jobs, Advanced Military Education, charter member status in both the Service Opportunity College (SOC) and the DoD MOU shows why Webster University is an institution that delivers high quality and fully accredited educational programs.
