MURRAY, Ky. — Murray State University has been recognized as a 2019-20 Military Friendly school by VIQTORY for the third consecutive year. The list is created annually based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans and survey responses. Murray State was one of 766 schools nationally who earned this recognition.
“We’re very pleased to be recognized for our efforts in supporting both military veterans as well as active duty military,” said Dr. Bob Jackson, Murray State University Interim President. “Through dedicated faculty and staff, our array of quality academic programs and new military tuition rate, our commitment is to continue to offer the necessary resources and opportunities that these individuals and their families deserve in order to fulfill their aspirations.”
The Office of Veteran and Military Student Success is primarily responsible for the administration of veterans educational benefits programs. The office provides resources and information to students and serves as a liaison between student veterans and dependents and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Resources include personalized advising, career planning and counseling services.
The University also offers a military tuition discount for active duty military, including waived course, online, and graduation fees, free textbooks, and a waiver of remaining tuition costs not covered by the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance program. Military students and their families can pursue an education at Murray State’s main campus in Murray, on base at Fort Campbell as well as other regional campuses in Paducah, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, Henderson or online.
