Military Students


Southern Wesleyan Named a 2016 Military Friendly School

Military students will find SWU's adult and graduate programs to be flexible, relevant, and affordable. With the flexibility of classes both onsite and online, as well as relevant degrees for your future, Southern Wesleyan is dedicated to the educational success of our armed forces.

I have heard some horror stories from guys I know trying to use the GI Bill at other universities. Southern Wesleyan understands the ins and outs of military financial aid like the GI Bill and does whatever it takes to help me out with it. SWU makes everything incredibly easy, so I can actually focus on schoolwork over paperwork.
