Class of 2014

"The MSTC program was a significant game-changer for me. I retired out of the Navy with a solid grounding in risk assessment, operations, and execution—both at the tactical and strategic level—but quickly realized I did not have the vocabulary and foundation that my civilian counterparts had regarding how the corporate side functions.

The MSTC program was a perfect bridge to creating that foundation. The conversations, questions, and concepts that I partake in today would absolutely not have been possible without the focused, rigorous curriculum that The University of Texas McCombs School of Business assembled in the MSTC program."

Stay on Budget

Our military students have been highly successful in getting the majority of costs associated with the Texas McCombs MSTC Program covered by one of the following options:

The Best Option The Post 9-11 GI Bill, available to service members who have served in the active military since September 11, 2001, will cover the majority of the costs. With nine course hours per semester, students qualify for full-time status, and many also qualify for a housing allowance.
Texas Military Waiver As the Texas McCombs MSTC Program is not eligible for the Hazlewood Act, we offer the Texas Military Waiver as an equivalent program. It is available only to those service members who qualify for Hazlewood. This will cover approximately 50% of the costs.
Federal Tuition Assistance This program pays up to $4,000 per fiscal year towards tuition.

Other assistance is available, and some benefits can be used in conjunction with each other.
