Office of Military and Veterans Academic Excellence
The Office of Military and Veterans Academic Excellence (OMVAE) at Wayne State University is dedicated to providing high quality and comprehensive student veteran support in an environment that fosters respect, commitment, and academic excellence. OMVAE provides direct and liaison services for all education and administrative matters pertaining to our student veterans, their families, and the military community at large.

Tuition Discount
Currently, all Wayne State service members are eligible for Michigan in-state tuition, as are veterans and members of any state’s National Guard. Enrollment and application fees are waived for all active military, veterans, reservists and guards who pay tuition at the in-state resident rate. All of Wayne State’s military-affiliated students also enjoy priority registration, which allows them to register early.  Further, active military members currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces may now qualify for a 50 percent tuition discount.  The Active Military Student Discount is the most expansive tuition benefit program for currently serving military personnel students offered by any four-year institution in Michigan. It is designed for individuals in any state who are on active duty in any component of the U.S. Armed Forces, including the Reserves and National Guard.
