Military & Veterans

The University of Michigan is long known for its veterans’ resources.

Consistent with this strong commitment, we proudly welcome armed services veterans and members of the military into the Michigan Ross community.

The same skills that helped you excel in the service ― leadership, responsibility, and critical thinking ― will also help you thrive at Ross. As someone who is unafraid to take action, you’ll embrace our action-based learning curriculum that provides business education via real world experiences.

Whether your goals are for a military or civilian career, we have deliberately created organizations, resources, and other support mechanisms to help with your success.

Student Organizations and Clubs

The Armed Forces Association

The Armed Forces Association at Michigan Ross helps advance the role of veterans in business. The association actively recruits prospective students and provides admissions guidelines from a student’s perspective. For current students, the association sponsors events, networking opportunities, and mentoring, and it serves as the cornerstone of the close-knit military community at Ross. Our faculty will work closely with you to shape your career goals, as well as opportunities to shadow executives and participate in special summer internship opportunities.

U-M Veterans and Military Services Program

U-M’s Office of New Student Programs sponsors the Veterans and Military Services Program and hosts welcoming dinners and programs of interest to veterans.

We encourage you to explore their resources for veterans.

Annual Events

Connect with other students and alumni in the military during the Veterans Leadership Summit or VETx.

Programs and Initiatives at Ross

Yellow Ribbon Program: Ross has proudly supported the Yellow Ribbon program without a cap on the number of students or costs since 2009. The Yellow Ribbon program covers unmet tuition needs for all 100% eligible Post 9/11 GI Bill students. However, the University of Michigan currently offers in-state tuition to all veterans, active service members, and those using Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. Since the Post 9/11 GI Bill covers in-state tuition, the Yellow Ribbon program, though supported, is not applicable to U-M students.

Specifics regarding the Post 9/11 GI Bill can be found in the Financial Aid sections of our program pages.
