Western Oregon University has continued its expansion of services for members of the military and their families. Effective August 1, 2016, WOU will waive the $60 undergraduate and graduate application fees for current members of the armed services and former members who were honorably discharged.

“Western Oregon University appreciates the service and sacrifices that members of the armed services have made for our country and the world. We are pleased to be able to waive the application fee for them,” WOU President Rex Fuller said. “The university offers many services including a Veterans Success Center for veterans and their families and we look forward to supporting their college success.”

WOU’s focus on providing students with a personalized and highly supportive learning experience has resulted in the university receiving numerous national awards for student success. The university is a Yellow Ribbon Program participant and has been repeatedly recognized by GI Jobs Magazine as a GI Friendly campus.

“As a veteran, and the coordinator of the WOU Veterans Success Center, I am pleased that the university has continued to expand its services and support for America’s veterans and current members of the armed services,” said Andrew Holbert, coordinator of the WOU Veterans Success Center. “This is a great school that provides all students, including veterans, a high quality education with tremendous personalized support services.”
