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 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 is a registered voter in Missouri, or eligible to vote in Missouri, as determined by the Missouri Secretary of State, or is a current Missouri resident 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.
