Military and Veteran Students

Maximize your transition with CMU’s flexible, nationally-recognized programs available in online, face-to-f​​​ace, or hybrid formats.

We value all our military and veteran students and thank you for your service.

In 1971, we recognized that bringing our programs to military installations was as important as welcoming military personnel to our main campus. We have support teams across the country dedicated to your needs. They'll help you stay on track to finish your degree and make sure you get credit for all applicable military training, saving you time and money on your program.

Nationally recognized

U.S. News & World Report has consistently ranked us among the nation’s top universities in its annual list of Best Online Programs for Veterans. You'll choose from nearly 300 rigorous programs. Whether you’re an undergraduate or a graduate student, a CMU degree will help you reach your professional and personal goals with career-focused programs and hands-on experiences.


Study on campus or online. We have one of the largest networks of classroom instruction locations at military installations in the country. A CMU education goes wherever you go.


Enjoy special tuition rates and an application fee waiver in recognition of your service. You may also qualify for additional scholarships and aid.

Our Online Student Services team is prepared to assist you in all aspects of your academic career.  We help you develop, clarify and achieve your academic goals.  Central Michigan University does not provide any commission, bonus or other incentive payment based directly on securing enrollments. We does not use high-pressure recruitment tactics, such as engaging in unsolicited outreach or same-day admitting and enrollment processes.  In that respect, we strongly encourage service members to speak with their Educational Services Officer (ESO) or education counselor within their Military Service prior to enrolling in Central Michigan University.
