Welcome to Washington Adventist University!

WAU provides working adults the opportunity to earn quality degrees and/or improve their skills through the School of Graduate and Professional Studies. As Columbia Union College, WAU was the first institution of higher education in the greater D.C. area to offer flexible, non-traditional degree programming that working adults need to progress, despite the demands of work and family.

To increase our ability to provide quality education for those with difficult schedules, we are increasing our online offerings. Come and grow with us.
