Indiana Wesleyan University has announced that it will begin offering a tuition discount to veterans.
Through this new initiative, IWU is extending a 10-percent tuition discount to veterans who have exhausted their Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, or veterans who are no longer eligible for those benefits. To be eligible for the tuition discount, veterans must be enrolled in Indiana Wesleyan University’s (IWU) adult and enrollment services program.
“IWU offers adult degree programs, either online or onsite at 17 locations in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky, so that we can help working adults achieve their dream of furthering their education,” said R. David Rose, vice president of enrollment and marketing for IWU’s non-residential services. “We are excited to be able to express our admiration and appreciation for the veterans’ service in the U.S. Armed Forces by offering this discount.”
The majority of IWU’s associate, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs qualify for the veterans’ discount, said Deanna Bowman, assistant director for corporate and transfer relationships in adult enrollment services.
“This 10-percent discount will ease the financial strain of earning a degree at IWU for those veterans who are no longer receiving educational benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs,” said Bowman, who leads an IWU taskforce on how the university can better serve both active duty military as well as veterans. “We want to honor and serve veterans to the best of our ability.”
While the tuition discount for veterans is new, IWU for years has offered a tuition discount for active duty military (including those in the National Guard and in the Reserves), and spouses of active duty military.
IWU has more than 600 students who are affiliated with the military enrolled in its adult degree program. More information on the veterans’ discount can be found at https://www.indwes.edu/veterans-discount/.
