WINGS - Network for Military and Veteran Students
Welcome to the WINGS Network (With Information and Guidance to Soar) of services at WSSU in the office of Nontraditional Adult Student Services. WSSU is committed to the success of our military and veteran students. Additional WSSU information targeted to veterans, active duty military, and dependents can be found under Featured Links. This page is a part of our special services developed to make non-traditional students welcome. Keep checking this site. There will be much more to come for you.
You may be eligible for Federal Veterans Education Benefits if you served in the U.S. Armed Forces on active duty, or if you are the dependent of a veteran whose death was service- related, or if you are the dependent of a veteran whose 100% disability is service related. You may learn more about the U.S. Armed Forces Veterans Benefits at their website.
Vicki Herman is the Veterans Services Certifying Official in the Registrar's Office. You may contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Troops To Teachers
WSSU is honored to support the Troops-to-Teachers program and participates in the program as an education provider. Troops-to-Teachers (TTT) was established in 1994 as a Department of Defense program to:
- assist and encourage military personnel to transition to second careers as teachers in K-12 public schools,
- address teacher shortages in math, science, special education, vocational/technical subjects, and
- support the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.
Currently WSSU offers a lateral-entry program in Physical Education.
