​​ Thank you for your service in our armed forces! At Central Michigan University, we appreciate the sacrifices you have made for our nation. And now, Welcome to Central!

There is a tremendous history of veterans earning degrees both at our main campus and among our hundreds of global campuses – many of which are included in one of the largest networks of classroom instruction at military bases in the country. Our military campuses stretch from the East Coast to Hawaii so you can take classes from Central Michigan University whenever and wherever it works for you.

You can meet your military obligations and still complete a bachelor’s or master’s degree from an accredited university with over 35 years of experience in off-campus and online education for the military. Combine our many locations with tuition discounts for active duty, guard, reserve, retired, spouses, and DoD civilian employees, and it is now as easy as ever to earn your degree.
