VA/Military Benefits

Wayland Baptist University was among the first institutions in the country to consider the needs of men and women serving in the United States armed services and offer degree programs in compliance with military education benefits.

Military students are a crucial part of the Wayland family. You will find men and women from every branch of the U.S. armed services taking courses at WBU. Courses are offered at military bases located near several of our campuses, from Alaska to New Mexico, and also online. This makes Wayland a good option for military service members to continue working toward a degree, even if they are relocated during their education.

Wayland Baptist University is grateful for the services provided by our students who are currently in the military and veterans. To help assist these students with paying for higher education, WBU participates in the following military education aid programs:
