Military Spouses

Welcome, Spouses

Military Friendly Spouse School 2019-20 badge

We recognize the unique background, needs and strengths military spouses bring to KU and foster an environment that is welcoming and inclusive of all our military-affiliated students.

Located in 345 Summerfield, we offer military spouse students study and meeting spaces, a 24-7 lounge, and dedicated staff to provide support tailored to all military-affiliated students.

Transitioning to KU

Residency & Yellow Ribbon

  • In-state tuition rates per the Armed Forces Residency benefit for:
    • spouses eligible for the GI Bill®
    • spouses of veterans stationed in Kansas during service and/or were Kansas residents prior to joining the service
    • spouses of active duty, Reservists and Kansas National Guardsmen
  • Yellow Ribbon Program funding for Post-9/11 GI Bill® users who are NOT eligible for in-state tuition (i.e. those living in Missouri while attending classes at KU)
  • Online students: Most online programs offer flat-rate tuition, so no need to apply for residency
