Maryville College welcomes Veterans, Service Members, and dependents interested in completing a college education!

Veteran's walking across campus

We understand the unique challenges facing Veterans, Active-duty Service Members, Guardsmen, Reservists, and their family members in the pursuit of a college education.  We are here to help! As a "Got Your 6" school, a participant in the Department of Veteran Affairs "Principles of Excellence" program and US Department of Education "8 Keys to Veterans' Success," Maryville College is recognized as a military-friendly school and was the first private institution named as a TN VETS campus.

Maryville College welcomes all era veterans. If using Post-9/11 GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program benefits, Maryville College will cover 100% of the remaining cost of tuition and fees.  We are also a TN Strong Act campus, accept Military Federal Tuition Assistance, and provide a unique opportunity for service members who have earned less than 100% toward their Post-9/11 benefits to attend with a remaining contribution by our MC Heroes Scholarship, covering up to 100% of tuition...ask us about it!

What does our college leadership think?

Veterans add important dimensions to the Maryville College experience. The life experience and professional skills developed in the military give our veterans context and insight that improve discussions in and out of class. Many of them have lived and worked in other countries, which provides important perspectives on issues. Maryville College’s mission is to prepare students to dedicate lives of creativity and service to the peoples of the world. Our veterans exemplify that mission. We are grateful for their service and proud to welcome them as part of the Maryville College community.
