Veterans returning from at least one year of active military service who have received an honorable discharge will be admitted to Western Illinois University without regard to previous academic performance provided that WIU is the first school that the veteran attends after leaving the service. Applicants in this category are required to have graduated from a recognized high school or to have earned a High School Equivalency Certificate. Applicants must submit the same academic documents required of those not in this admission category. In addition, veterans must submit a copy of form DD-214.
These provisions also apply to individuals who have served for at least a year in VISTA, the Peace Corps, or similar programs.
