For Immediate Release
National Military Family Association and Webster University Team Up for Military Spouses
February 11, 2015
Alexandria, VA—The National Military Family Association (NMFA), a nonprofit that works to strengthen and protect military families, announced today a new collaboration with Webster University to offer military spouses exclusive access to its most preferred tuition rates. These most preferred rates can save military spouses between $100 and $400 per credit hour depending on their undergraduate, graduate, and online options.
“We are thrilled to be working with Webster University,” said Joyce Raezer, NMFA Executive Director. “Military families move a lot—around the country and around the world—which makes finishing a degree difficult. Webster’s global educational footprint will open up many degree options for our military families, and we’re glad to see Webster’s recognition of the military family lifestyle and their commitment to help make life better for these families.”
NMFA is expanding its mission to support military spouses’ education goals by pursuing academic partnerships with reputable organizations who understand and accommodate the unique needs of the military lifestyle. Webster University – which already offers most preferred rates to Active Duty, National Guard and Reserve military service members – now has agreed to extend those rates exclusively to spouses applying through the NMFA website.
“We are very pleased to partner with the NMFA as their mission aligns very well with ours; namely to provide resources to our military families that allows them to achieve their educational goals” stated Dr Greg Gunderson, Webster University’s Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
The most preferred tuition rates are available to new students only and NMFA must certify any student applying to Webster University. For more detailed information, visit the NMFA website.
