MARQUETTE (WWJ/AP) – Northern Michigan University says it’s guaranteeing in-state tuition for all eligible U.S. military veterans seeking a college degree.
The Marquette school says the NMU Veterans Scholarship “covers any tuition costs” beyond the in-state rate that aren’t covered by veteran’s benefits and the federal Yellow Ribbon program.
According to their website, Northern, like the other public universities in Michigan, charges lower tuition rates to Michigan residents, their spouses and children partially because the state universities receive some operating funds from the State of Michigan.
Active-duty military, their spouses and children also automatically qualify for resident tuition, but must supply documentation of active-duty status. The residency guidelines also allow students to be considered residents if they have a legal guardian who is a Michigan resident.
Honorably discharged military veterans may be eligible for the NMU Veterans Scholarship once they have provided form DD214 to our Financial Aid Office.
