WXYZ: Active U.S. military members may qualify for 50% tuition at Wayne State
Active U.S. military members may now qualify for a 50 percent tuition discount through Wayne State University. The Active Military Student Discount is designed for members who are on active duty in any of the U.S. Armed Forces, including the Reserves and National Guard. Service members who are admitted to Wayne State University (from any state) can use the discount for classes on campus and online. "This new tuition plan will allow active duty military to reduce the out-of-pocket expenses that they would have to pay to enroll in and stay in school," said Wayne State University Provost Keith Whitfield. "We want to help them by providing a clear pathway to affording college and giving them a head start so they don't have to wait until they complete their service to begin working on their degree. This is critical because it will encourage our military service members to start thinking and planning for their future careers after they complete their service to our country." "It is important that we create a tuition program that serves our military members as they serve our country," says Ahmad Ezzeddine, associate vice president for educational outreach. "We owe them. They put their lives on the line to protect us, and this is just one way that we can show our gratitude for their bravery and service."
