Military Educational Benefits

Cybersecurity has become a crucial component in national defense with a growing need to protect systems and information at the federal, state and local levels. Current and former military service members can find a wide range of career opportunities by developing their skills in assessing and responding to cyberthreats. Recognized as a National Center of Excellence in Cyber Defense by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security, GW is proud to offer the online Master of Engineering in cybersecurity policy and compliance as part of our continued participation in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

We salute the dedication of those who have served our country by offering educational benefits to qualifying individuals. Students who are not on active duty or have a spouse that is on active duty may qualify to receive military benefits for their online master’s degree in cybersecurity policy and compliance.

To learn more about GW’s Yellow Ribbon Program participation, eligible scholarships and other valuable information, visit our Office of Military and Veteran Student Services site.

In addition, GW students are working to fund a Military Resource Center that will provide information, guidance, and support to student veterans—online and on-campus. To explore the latest developments in this initiative, click here.
