Midland University is committed to supporting all of our military and veteran-affiliated students in furthering their education.
Midland University is a member of the Service member’s Opportunity Colleges (S.O.C.), a consortium of national higher education associations and institutions.
We are pleased to be in the top 15% of military-friendly colleges and universities in the nation. This ranking is based on research conducted by the Military Friendly Schools Organization of over 7,000 higher education institutions nationwide, assessing which schools provided the best education, value, and welcoming atmosphere for military personnel.
In addition to competitive scholarships for veterans and active military personnel, we will also help guide you through the admissions process.
