Active Duty Military, Veterans, and Eligible Dependents Using VA Benefits

Missouri Returning Heroes Act

In compliance with the Missouri Returning Heroes Act, tuition charged to combat veterans will be limited to fifty dollars per credit hour. Eligibility is determined for any program leading to an undergraduate certificate, associate degree, or baccalaureate degree. A “combat veteran” is any person who served in armed combat after September 11, 2001, who was a Missouri resident when first entering the military and who was discharged from military service under honorable conditions.

To apply, a copy of the student’s most recent DD-214 (long form) and the Returning Heroes Education Act Application must be submitted to the Office of Enrollment Services located in the Administrative Building, Room 1204. The Office of Enrollment Services will determine the amount, if any, that tuition will be reduced.

Active Duty Military

In compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act, in-state tuition rates will be charged for any member of the armed forces who is on active duty for a period of more than 30 days and whose domicile or permanent duty station is in the State of Missouri. Eligibility is also extended to the service member’s spouse or dependents. The in-state rate will apply so long as the service member, their spouse or dependent is continuously enrolled at St. Charles Community College, notwithstanding a subsequent change in the permanent duty station of the service member to a location outside of Missouri.
