Nontraditional & Commuter Student Center


Veterans are nontraditional students whose life experiences makes their educational journey unique. The Nontraditional and Commuter Student Center works closely with the MWSU chapter of the Student Veterans of America in order to create an intentional culture of understanding, acceptance, and success for Veterans at Missouri Western. This includes having a veteran student program assistant and programs specifically for veterans.

Each November during Nontraditional and Veteran Student Appreciation week various programs are hosted throughout the university to show our appreciation for your service. The Nontraditional and Commuter Student Center opens applications for, “Heroes Among Us” nominees who will be honored during an awards reception. In 2013, Missouri Western honored 22 veterans including students, faculty and staff. This is an annual event with the call for nominations posted on this page.
