Military Student
Admissions and Support

Averett welcomes veterans, active-duty military service members, and their family members to the Averett University learning community. Our locations in Virginia mean we are close to many major military and Department of Defense sites. But it’s our military-friendly policies that make us close to the military community. We are dedicated to supporting the educational needs of students from military backgrounds— and thanks to that dedication, G.I. Jobs magazine has recognized Averett in the top 20 percent of America’s most military-friendly schools for five consecutive years. Military students at Averett University benefit from:
