Military Service

If you or your parent or guardian is in the military or a veteran, these programs can benefit you:

  • The GI Bill is available for Active Duty Military, Veterans and Reservists. 
  • Out-of-state fees can be waived for Active Duty Military, Veterans, Reservists and their dependents.
  • Students may also join the Reserve Officer Training Program (ROTC), which helps pay for tuition, books, and provides a monthly stipend. For more information, visit Air Force ROTC or Army ROTC.
  • Free tuition is available for Mississippi Air and Army National Guard who are full-time undergraduate students, in good standing with their unit and not within one year of their expiration of term of service.

Other programs for Active Duty Military, Veterans, Reservists and their spouses, dependents, and survivors can be found at the MSU Center for America’s Veterans.
