As a member of the U.S. Armed Forces (Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard) who has served on active duty for a period of more than 30 days, you, your spouse, and your dependent children are eligible to receive in-state tuition at public colleges and universities in the state where you reside or are permanently stationed.
Once you or your family member is enrolled and paying in-state tuition, you will continue to pay the in-state tuition rate as long as you remain continuously enrolled at the institution, even if you are reassigned outside the state.
The Department of Education has worked with the institutions of higher education and they are aware of the changes in the law and are fully implementing the policy. However, there is always the chance that an institution did not receive the information. If this happens, you should contact the financial aid or registrar's office at the institution. You can also contact the Veterans Affairs office at the institution.
Even though you are active duty, these offices should be able to assist you. In the rare cases where these steps don't resolve the situation, please contact the Department of Education's Ombudsman's office via PH:877-557-2575 or visit their website.
