The Distance MSIS program at Mississippi State University is military friendly. What does that mean for you?
Our Distance MSIS does not require any on campus visits. This makes it easier for military members to continue their education while deployed or after changing stations.
We are a Servicemembers Opportunity College (SOCS) and follow the Institutional Operating Guidelines to facilitate graduate program admissions, enrollment, and degree completion by servicemembers.
We have a flexible transfer of credit policy. We can give up to six hours transfer credit for graduate level coursework from a recognized university provided they contribute to the current program of graduate study and were taken within the eight year time limit for the completion of the MSIS degree.
Our Center for America's Veterans provides veterans with many services. The G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Center for America's Veterans was established to provide higher education opportunities to veterans through programs and services unavailable from other institutions. For more information about their services, please visit the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Center for America’s Veterans website.
We do not charge any out of state tuition for distance courses. If you choose to attend on campus, you may also be eligible for a waiver of out of state tuition under the Mississippi Code.
Military members called to active duty or deployed may be eligible for a full refund. Please see the MSU Academic Operating Policy AOP 12.32 - Refund and Course Credit Policy for Student Members of the Military Called to Active Duty or Deployed for details.
