Michigan State University is proud to support those who serve the United States and is committed to helping servicemembers and veterans achieve their education goals. With the convenience and flexibility to study 100% online, anytime, anywhere, you can earn a Michigan State master’s degree or certificate – no matter where you are stationed. Michigan State is proud to offer veterans, active-duty servicemembers and spouses of both veterans and active-duty servicemembers special military graduate assistance and discounts on tuition.
In DOD Instruction 1322.25 issued in March of 2011, the U.S. Department of Defense recognized the role of education in cultivating a career, stating that education is important for servicemembers looking to achieve opportunities for advancement and leadership. MSU allows you to earn your degree or professional certificate while continuing to serve the United States. Since no campus attendance is ever required, your studies never have to interfere with your duty schedule.

Exclusive Savings – Active-duty servicemembers, guardsmen, reservists, veterans, military spouses and dependents of deceased or disabled veterans are eligible to receive special tuition savings.
Uninterrupted Study – You won’t have to put your studies or career advancement on hold for a military assignment or transfer.
Unmatched Convenience – With 24/7 online access, you can watch lectures, complete projects and take exams on your schedule, from anywhere in the world!
Exit and Re-enter the Program – If you have a temporary duty assignment, you may exit and re-enter your degree program without penalty.

There are a variety of military tuition assistance and education benefits programs available to active duty and veteran servicemembers which can be used to offset graduate tuition.
