We provide support, referral, guidance, and fellowship for students identified as active military or veterans in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs.

Whether you are pursuing traditional undergraduate, adult undergraduate or graduate studies we have resources and support for your education!

Military Friendly

Northwestern was named to the coveted 2014 Military Friendly Schools ® list, recognized for doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

"The school couldn't have been better for me. There were times I needed to take an incomplete or needed an extension on an assignment, and the teachers were really flexible with that. That was a big deal because I don't really have control over my military schedule."  – Tech Sgt. Brandon Lancaster '10
