Veteran Student Services

Your destination for advancing
your education

Missouri State University is a nationally-recognized military friendly school, as named by GI Jobs Magazine. But what makes Missouri State the place for veterans?

You receive many benefits just for being you.

We don’t just say we value our veteran students. We show it by providing veterans with the following perks:

  • Priority registration access 
  • Prepayment of tuition for Post 9/11 GI Bill recipients
  • Access to a veteran student lounge
  • Enrollment in a veteran-focused, first-year transition class
  • Support from devoted veteran student services staff members
  • Mentorship from military veteran transition liaisons

You can find your place in a community of veterans.

Missouri State is home to one of the largest number of veterans and dependents on a college campus in Missouri. With about 150 veterans also serving in faculty and staff positions throughout the University, we understand the challenges involved in deciding to get a degree.

You have easy access to the resources you need to succeed.

Starting the day you are admitted, we are committed to helping you complete your degree and find your dream job. A variety of on-campus resources are available to help you schedule your classes, offset the cost of education and receive assistance with classes.

Also, the Springfield community and surrounding region support a number of veteran-specific resources and centers to assist you. A complete list is available on our Resources page.

You can follow your passion.

From criminology to business to everything in between, Missouri State offers 85+ undergraduate majors leading to 185+ academic options, so you can easily find the perfect fit for your interests. The on-campus Career Center helps you turn that passion into a career.
