Missouri Returning Heroes Education Act

Op5.21-1 Missouri Returning Heroes Education Act

In support of our student veterans, Missouri State University is implementing the Missouri Returning Heroes Education Act effective with the Fall 2008 semester.  The act provides that institutions of higher education that receive any state funds, here too shall limit the tuition charged to combat veterans to fifty dollars per credit hour, as eligibility is determined, for any program leading to an undergraduate certificate, or an associate or baccalaureate degree. A "combat veteran" is any person who served in armed combat after September 11, 2001, who was a Missouri resident when first entering the military, and who was discharged from military service under honorable conditions. 

Veterans Services will determine if you meet the criteria to be considered for reduced tuition.  The Office of Student Financial Aid will determine the amount, if any, that your tuition will be reduced.
