MU to offer military discount for online classes - ROGER MCKINNEY, Columbia Tribune

The University of Missouri has established a 10 percent tuition discount for online courses available to current military members, veterans and their spouses and children. The discount applies to base tuition for a maximum of 150 hours of undergraduate credits and 75 hours of graduate credits through Mizzou Online. Recipients must be seeking a degree. Those who qualify for the award must maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA to remain eligible. The discount was created because many veterans have exhausted their military educational benefits or don’t qualify for full coverage, MU officials said. MU Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin said during a Wednesday news conference that the tuition discount will improve access to higher education. http://www.columbiatribune.com/news/education/mu-to-offer-military-discount-for-online-classes/article_b455cd73-16ea-544d-b9e6-db4218a4f3e8.html
