The Registrar's Office handles eligibility for veteran and veteran dependent benefits. Missouri S&T is approved for the certification of students eligible to receive educational assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Students who have served in the armed forces may be eligible to receive college credit for courses completed through the military or occupational specialty training. The American Council of Education (ACE) recommendations in A Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experience in the Armed Services generally serve as a basis for granting such credit. To count toward a degree, the credit recommended must be appropriate to the student's curriculum and must be determined by the academic department or appropriate faculty to be equivalent in content to courses at Missouri S&T. Missouri S&T does not grant credit for military science or for courses that are strictly military/vocational in content.
Missouri University of Science and Technology was named one of the “Top Schools” in the 2014 Guide to Military Friendly Colleges & Universities.
