Valparaiso University’s 100% online graduate programs offer the convenience and flexibility to study online anytime, anywhere and still meet your military service obligations.

Position Yourself for Success Whether You Stay In or Separate From Service

In DOD Instruction 1322.25 issued in March of 2011, the Department of Defense recognized the role of education in cultivating a career, stating that education is important for service members looking to achieve opportunities for advancement and leadership. Valparaiso University allows you to earn your degree while continuing to serve your country. Select Master’s Degree Programs are offered 100% online. No campus attendance is ever required for these select programs, so your studies never have to interfere with your duty schedule.
