Webster University courses of study are approved for veterans' educational benefits in compliance with prescribed regulations by special approval agencies in each state and for each country where the University offers programs.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) requires approval for the student to enroll in more than the minimum number of credit hours required for the graduate degree. This approval may be requested on the Program Option Request Form.

Veterans' educational benefits may be reduced for directed studies and 1-credit-hour seminars. Non-degree students and students working on the M.A.T. advanced graduate certificate are not eligible for veterans' educational benefits.

If veterans' educational benefits apply, the regional VA office will be notified of the date on which a student officially ceases attendance. Records of progress are kept by the institution on both veteran and non-veteran students. Progress records are available to all students at the end of each scheduled term. Additional information may be obtained from the Office of the Registrar at the St. Louis home campus:
