Military Spouses

Military Benefits

Military spouses who use benefits from their service member qualify for UCM's military tuition package.

Spouses who relocate to Missouri with an active duty service member can submit a copy of military orders to the Military and Veteran's Success Center to receive resident tuition rates and opportunities for resident grants and scholarships! 


UCM's MyCAA Program in Partnership offers a variety of completely online certificate programs with "0" out-of-pocket cost.  Eligible military spouses can receive a $4,000 scholarship.  The MyCAA program is designed to help eligible military spouses gain the training needed to start a rewarding career.
