Murray State University says it is offering tuition discounts for military students allowing them to earn their college degrees at little or no out-of-pocket cost.

The university says the initiative is available to service members in the U.S. armed forces. It's available to military students interested in pursuing undergraduate or graduate degree programs.

Murray State officials say the school will now waive course fees, provide free textbooks and match remaining tuition costs not covered by the U.S. Department of Defense Military Tuition Assistance Program.

MSU says the students will have the flexibility of taking courses in their preferred setting. These include Murray's main campus, at Fort Campbell or at any of the school's regional campuses in Paducah, Hopkinsville, Madisonville and Henderson.
