Now It's Our Turn

A Place Where Military is Family.

Gardner-Webb University proves its dedication to veterans and military families every day through the resources that we commit to help you succeed.

From our ROTC program and on-campus VA benefits counselor to our dedicated Freedom Hall lounge space and thriving campus Military Club, you have numerous opportunities to integrate into the GWU military community.  The specific requirements and forms vary based on your type of service or chapter.

We’re Committed to Serving YOU.

Especially in our online environment Gardner-Webb is committed to quality course delivery and support for our students. Taught by professors hailing from prestigious educational institutions across the nation, GWU’s online degree programs offer the flexibility to complete your education from somewhere other than our campus, without sacrificing the quality of instruction or value of your degree. For a full list of traditional and non-traditional programs:

With the Montgomery GI Bill chapters, the Yellow Ribbon Program, and Vocational Rehabilitation, you have a strong array of financial aid options available to you as a veteran. And, with our VA benefits expert by your side, you won’t have to navigate this process alone. 

Your Family is our Family.

At Gardner-Webb University, we respect and honor the sacrifices you have made. But, we also know that military spouses and dependents have educational needs, too. Our VA benefits expert can help navigate the process for you and your spouse or dependents.

“I found everyone to be very helpful and willing to work with me as I face several obstacles in doing an online program while deployed overseas. They are really concerned with helping me make the most of my experience.”
— Hollis Guenther (’19)
“This (Doctor of Nursing Practice) degree will also help me to advance in my naval career and give me an edge at the interdisciplinary table. I appreciate the quality of the education I have received and know that learning how to identify problems, research solutions and implement changes that lead to improved outcomes will benefit my practice no matter where I go.”
— Debbie Brendley (’18)
