New Tuition Award for Military Personnel, Veterans

University of Missouri Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin and Provost Garnett Stokes announced that MU will begin offering a 10 percent tuition award for all military personnel, veterans, their spouses and their children effective immediately. The award will reduce the amount of their base tuition and will apply toward a maximum of 150 hours of undergraduate credit and/or 75 hours of graduate credits toward a distance degree or certification program through Mizzou Online.

“We owe so much to those who are serving in our nation’s military as well as their families. We are honored that many of them choose to get their education through the University of Missouri,” Loftin said. “Although we cannot thank them enough, we hope this new award will be both an incentive and an aid as they enroll and work toward receiving a degree at Mizzou in their chosen fields.”

“Giving veterans this tuition break encourages them into accessible higher education, and this helps the veterans, their families and the Missouri economy,” said Larry Kay, Missouri Veterans Commission executive director. “Mizzou realizes how important veterans are to the future of our state and our nation and how productive they can be in the workforce.”

To qualify for the award, individuals must complete the following requirements:

Be an active-duty service member, veteran with honorable discharge, national guard or reservist. Dependents of these military personnel also are eligible for the award.
Be accepted to Mizzou as a degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student who is working on a distance degree or certificate program through Mizzou Online.
Maintain a 2.0 GPA.
