Military Applicants

We welcome applicants from the various branches of the U.S. military. UC Davis MBA students still serving or with past military service have excelled inside and outside the classroom.

“Professors and fellow students have valued the unique perspective military service brings, and the career development staff have been steadfast advocates for the exceptional leadership and management skills veterans bring to the business world.” — Brandon Quackenbush MBA 19, U.S. Navy 2008-2014

Military Friendly School for 2021-22

The UC Davis Graduate School of Management has been named a top 2021-2022 Military Friendly® School by militaryfriendly.com. We’re proud of our student veterans and their achievements inside and outside the classroom.

We are committed to making merit scholarship and financial aid available to qualified military personnel. We offer the following to U.S. military and former U.S. military personnel:

  • Awards up to $6,000 for tuition expenses not covered by the Post-9/11 GI Bill to up to two eligible UC Davis Graduate School of Management students; with this Veterans Affairs (VA) will match that amount dollar for dollar.
  • Application fee waiver. Please contact your admissions team before submitting your application to arrange for the waiver.
  • Automatic one-year deferment if admitted military students’ plans are delayed by their service branch.
