The Office of Military and Veteran Services would like to celebrate the service of our nation’s heroes. Veterans attending WashU are encouraged to self-identify so our office may corral the necessary support to ensure student success.  We advocate for veterans and servicemembers from all branches, whether you do or do not receive educational benefits from the DOD or VA.

Please help us account for all designated students attending Washington University. Thank you for your service to our nation and welcome to the WashU veteran community.
