Missouri Returning Heroes Act
The Missouri Returning Heroes' Education Act limits tuition charged to qualified combat veterans to $50 per credit hour, for any program leading to a certificate or Associate's or Bachelor’s degree. For purposes of this law, a "combat veteran" is any person who served in armed combat after Sept. 11, 2001, who was a Missouri resident when first entering the military and who was discharged from military service under honorable conditions.
An eligible combat veteran shall receive the tuition limitation as long as the veteran achieves and maintains a 2.5 cumulative grade point average. The eligibility period for the tuition limitation shall expire ten years from the date of the veteran's last discharge from service. Contact your campus Financial Aid office for more details.
