USDVA: In-State Tuition for GI Bill Beneficiaries
Sacramento - Today, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA) announced all Veterans and dependents using USDVA’s GI Bill benefits shall receive temporary
in-state tuition status through the end of the year, regardless of their state of residence.
“Today’s action by USDVA ensures students using GI Bill benefits in California are able to continue training at their chosen institutions and receive in-state tuition status,” said Keith Boylan, CalVet’s Deputy Secretary for Veterans Services. “CalVet thanks USDVA for taking the initiative for our Veterans and dependents using the GI Bill.”
USDVA’s policy impacts Veterans and dependents who enroll in an institution within three years of the Veteran’s qualifying discharge. The new rule was issued as a waiver under the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014.
