Boots to Utes

Veterans bring unique skills and experience to graduate studies in International Affairs & Global Enterprise. With the interdisciplinary nature of our program, we consider your contribution invaluable to the rest of our graduate students.

Who is a Veteran?

The University of Utah Veteran Support Center defines a veteran as follows:

"Any student, alumni, faculty, or staff member of the University of Utah who has been or currently is a military member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard (active or reserve), or National Guard of any state; or has separated from these services with a discharge other than Dishonorable is considered to be a Veteran by the Veterans Support Center. Any ROTC cadet in their 3rd or 4th year and any spouse or children of Veterans under this definition may also seek support from the Veterans Support Center."

If you meet any of these criteria then, as a MIAGE student, you qualify for many of the benefits available for veterans!

  • An active veteran's community, complete with meetings and get-togethers.
  • Compensation for the cost of the LSAT, GMAT and GRE.
  • Purple Heart tuition waivers.
  • Resident (in-state) tuition for all active duty and dependents, regardless of residency status.
