Military Friendly School

The University of Missouri has been designated a Military Friendly School for helping military students succeed in the classroom and after graduation. MU also offers a 10 percent tuition award to veterans, active duty service members, Reservists, National Guardsmen, military spouses and dependents who want to study online. Another way MU helps military personnel and their families transition between service and academia is the MU Veterans Center. Additionally, The Missouri Returning Heroes Education Act requires Missouri public postsecondary institutions to limit eligible combat veterans’ tuition to $50 per credit hour. Visit Mizzou’s Veterans Center for additional information.


A member of the Southeastern Conference, Mizzou’s NCAA Division I athletic program has 20 sports, many ranked in the top 25 nationally. Mizzou has you covered with football, basketball, and a large variety of team sports. As a part of the NROTC program, you will have opportunities to see the Tigers in action while supporting the NROTC color guard and shooting the canon during Mizzou football. With Faurot Field being modernized for the future, Mizzou football is becoming a top-tier football program in the nation.
