Military Applicants

Information for Graduate Applicants

The Trulaske College of Business and our graduate programs welcome applications from military personnel and veterans. Proudly a Yellow Ribbon Program, the University of Missouri welcomes students who have served across the globe. The experiences and skills learned in the military – teamwork, leadership, accomplishing objectives – are an invaluable foundation for a successful educational experience.

Campus Veterans Center

The MU campus is military-friendly and provides resources for veterans as well as reservists and active duty military. The MU Veterans Center opened in Fall 2008 and is located in historic Memorial Union. The staff will give you personal assistance with the transition back to school and will coordinate administration of your veterans’ benefits. The Center offers a welcoming and comfortable environment for our veterans to interact with one another and take full advantage of the educational and social opportunities here at MU.

Active Duty Military or Veterans Applicants

The University of Missouri Crosby MBA Program is designated a Military-Friendly School by the Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC). If you have been on active duty within three years of your application to our program, please contact us at prior to submitting your application so that we can provide you with the benefits associated with that designation, including:

  • Waiver of the application fee
  • Evaluation of your qualifications for financial awards that can supplement any additional benefits you may have through the military
  • A one-year deferment if your plans are delayed by your service requirements

The MU Veterans Center on campus is here to meet the needs and address the concerns of veterans at Mizzou, including camaraderie among fellow veterans, resources and support.
