Military Students

Southern Wesleyan Named a 2021-22 Top Military Friendly School

Military and veteran students will find SWU's online programs to be flexible, relevant, and affordable. With the flexibility of online classes, as well as relevant degrees for your future career, Southern Wesleyan is dedicated to the educational success of our veterans. 

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.
