Rice University Veteran and Military Offerings

Since Rice is a private institution, it does not adhere to the famous Hazelwood Act that Texas is widely known for. Rice is however a GI Bill approved school and participates in the Yellow Ribbon and MyCAA programs.

Additionally, the business school at Rice offers a Military Scholars Program. This program is only offered to applicants applying to the Full-Time MBA program and covers all tuition, fees and expected living expenses.

About Rice

Established in 1912, Rice University is one of the youngest and most dynamic of America's highly competitive universities. Although it may not boast the lengthy history of many of its peer institutions, it has taken advantage of the unique opportunity to create an ideal college environment by analyzing and emulating the successful attributes of its predecessors.

Well before the first students matriculated, Rice's founders commissioned a study of the premiere educational institutions of the world.

After visiting seventy-eight institutions in fifteen countries, the traveling party returned to Texas and combined the best attributes of each into their own vision of a utopian university on the outskirts of the young city of Houston.

The Rice of today has achieved international prominence among educational institutions by adapting itself to the needs of the twenty-first century while remaining loyal to the well-crafted vision of its founders.

Rice students enjoy many luxuries during their undergraduate careers, including small classes, personal interactions with professors, first-rate research opportunities, an inclusive social structure, and a collaborative student environment.

But what students come to appreciate most during their years at Rice is the culture of personal responsibility and self-determination that pervades the campus. The Rice administration treats its students like adults from the very first minute of orientation week through the end of graduation day. This trusting environment is evidenced throughout all aspects of student life, from the Honor Code and the flexible academic curriculum to the emphasis on student government, and the absence of hall monitors and curfews in the residential colleges.

Such freedoms provide students with the ideal environment to mature and develop as intellectuals and as human beings. Although there will certainly be stumbles and challenges along the way, Rice students leave campus as some of the happiest and most self-aware, confident, and capable college graduates in the country.
