We're Here to Support You

Thank You for Your Service


At Roger Williams University (RWU), we know that defending our country is a demanding profession and one that is often accompanied by irregular hours, last-minute orders and little time for formal study. That is why we are proud to say that we are here to assist you.

For more than 20 years, RWU has collaborated and maintained partnerships with education officers throughout the military branches. We offer military benefits to include, but not limited to, waived application fee, discounted tuition rates for both and service members and their spouses, online program offerings, personal advising, and academic support.

RWU supports our service members, including Guard and Reserve, their spouses, and veterans.

Our advisors understand where you've been and where you want to go; some have military backgrouns and are specialized in the program you wish to pursue. We offer:

  • Military representatives who understand the culture and lingo you're used to
  • Help navigating the application process for tuition assistance, GI Bill benefits and other tuition benefits, including financial aid
  • Credit for your applicable military training and education
  • A wide range of programs at all levels—from associate through graduate
  • An education that helps prepare you with the skills and knowledge you'll need for professional life after the military
  • Career transition resources that helps translate your military experience into corresponding civilian jobs

Whether attending a local campus or working towards a degree online, an RWU college experience is possible no matter where you are.

"You have to find the time to get it (school work) all done, but RWU was very tolerant of work and really accommodates a military lifestyle.”
