Drury University is a nationally-accredited and military-friendly school.
Our student body population includes many service members, military spouses and retirees who use a variety of financial assistance programs to help pay for college.
Some of these programs include the Tuition Assistance Program, Veteran’s Affairs Post 9/11 Bill, Vocational Rehabilitation (which is also a program of the Veterans Affairs), and the Nelnet payment plan for those who do not have access to other programs.
Through Nelnet, a student can attend college through scheduled monthly payments.
Military spouses can utilize the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts, or MYCAA. This program is available for spouses of service members with certain paygrades. The paygrades are E-1 to E5, W1, or O1 and O2.
This program is designed to help spouses obtain an Associate’s Degree. For more information on this program, contact Mrs. Donna King at 573.451.2400.
For service members, we offer credits for prior service.
Classes on a military member’s Joint Service Transcript will be given anywhere from 8 to 31 credit hours. For those who are EMT certified, we transfer those certificates to credit hours as well.
Drury University offers a variety of ways to help a student meet their needs to achieve their goal in education.
We offer online courses for students who cannot attend the classroom because of deployments, permanent changes of station and various other reasons. We offer courses in two eight-week segments, an A and B block.
These can be done online or in the classroom; 16-week courses are also available both online and in the classroom.
