Serving the Military for Over 40 Years
Webster University opened its first military campus in 1974, and since then has provided unmatched educational programs to our military 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.
Military Times named Webster University to its “Best for Vets: Colleges 2017” list, based on a survey of several hundred schools. The survey recognizes schools' efforts to accommodate veterans and active-duty service members. In 2017, Webster ranked 1st in Missouri and 8th nationally among private four-year institutions. Full report.
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. As a worldwide institution ensuring high-quality learning experience that transforms students for global citizenship and individual excellence, the Office of Military Affairs takes great pride upholding the standards Webster University demands and military students deserve.
Office of Military Affairs: Goals
Military-focused student groups and clubs, including the Webster University Student Veterans Organization and local engagement with partnership US Air Force and US Army ROTC units, are under the purview of the OMA. Additionally, the OMA coordinates the delivery of Webster's education programs at military campuses serving all branches of the military, maintains Webster's alliances with federal and state agencies and advises the University's leadership on military-related issues and opportunities across all branches of our government, including the Department of Defense's student base for non-degree offerings, undergraduate-completion, undergraduate, and graduate degree programs.
