Welcome Veterans and Military Families
At Maryville University, we pride ourselves on working with students on an individual basis. That includes students like you who are busy active duty military personnel, military spouses, dependants and veterans, with family commitments or personal goals that don’t allow time to take classes during the traditional school day. Welcome to Maryville’s Weekend & Evening College! The University’s commitment to helping veterans return to school following their military service has been recognized by G.I. Jobs magazine, which recently named Maryville to its 2010 list of Military Friendly Schools. The honor ranks Maryville in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide that embrace America’s veterans as students.
