Active Duty Military, Veterans, and Military Dependents

Veterans residing in Virginia may be eligible for in-state tuition under a veteran exception provision.  Eligibility for the in-state tuition rate may be available to veterans residing in Virginia who were discharged from the military for reasons other than “dishonorable.” Please review the Frequently Asked Questions below to determine eligibility. For additional information, please go to SCHEV’s Financial Benefits for Military Veterans and their Families.

Newly admitted veteran students classified as out-of-state should contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or the appropriate graduate unit to see whether they qualify.  Continuing students (i.e., students in their second semester of enrollment or later at GMU) should complete the Military Supplemental Form (below) and return it to the Certification Section along with the documentation listed on the form.
