University of Charleston

The University of Charleston has been designated a “Military Friendly” school in part because we understand the challenges and needs of military students.  

Our classes are geared to do two things: engage you in active learning and help you grow as a leader. Our faculty is both dedicated and student-oriented, offering a wealth of professional experience. Most also have a prior military background.

UC provides the flexibility you need in dealing with deployment issues and will work to enable you to continue your education. Many of our students are actively serving while taking classes, participating in courses via WebEx from all over the world.

 

If at any time during the admissions process you have questions, please contact our Military Office at 304-357-4946 (Michael Levy, Director of Educational Partnerships and Military Programs, michaellevy@ucwv.edu)
