WOU expands program to Oregon Reservists

Oregon Marine Corps Reservists who were denied GI Bill Educations benefits after a recent deployment under the obscure Section 12304b of Title 10 of the U.S. Code are now eligible for WOU’s expanded Voyager Award scholarship program. The Voyager Award is traditionally for members of the National Guard or Reserves who are Oregon residents and meet the military service requirements. Eligible members can receive up to four years of tuition assistance. This scholarship is considered a “last dollar” program, meaning it is calculated after other state and federal grants for which eligible students qualify. 


Application Fee Waived

Western Oregon recognizes members of the U.S. Armed Forces and Honorably discharged Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces by exempting them from the $60 admissions Application fee. Provide a copy of your DD-214, or, for current military members, a copy of your most recent military orders, Enlisted Records Brief (ERB), or Officer Records Brief (ORB). 

Once you have completed the online application for admissions form please select the “defer your application fee” box.  When the supporting documents have been received the application fee will be waived and your application will be processed.  You can fax the required forms listed above to 503-838-8067, scan or e-mail them to
