Strayer University provides undergraduate and graduate degree programs and classes throughout the year. The university offers flexible class schedules, convenient campus locations, and online learning opportunities. Undergraduate and graduate degree programs are available in Business Administration, Accounting, Information Technology, Human Resource Management, Education, Health Services Administration, Public Administration, and Criminal Justice. Select programs have been approved as VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) programs of study under the VA’s educational benefits regulations. Recently, Strayer began offering an executive MBA online through its Jack Welch Management Institute.

More than 50,000 students are currently enrolled at Strayer’s 94 campuses in 23 states and the District of Columbia – and worldwide via the Internet. Strayer University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and has been in operation since 1892. The university recently earned recognition in Military Advanced Education’s 5th Annual Guide to America’s Top Military-Friendly Colleges and Universities for the fifth consecutive year.

Scholarships at Strayer University provide financial support for veterans. Beyond the military’s tuition assistance program and other educational resources, military scholarships for active duty members at Strayer University cover 100 percent of undergraduate tuition costs and nearly all of graduate tuition costs. Spouses of active duty servicemembers are also eligible for the same Strayer University military scholarship. In addition, the university participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program; funds from Strayer University and the VA cover all tuition costs and expenses for those in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
