Bill would allow veterans and their families easier access to in-state tuition rates
Arizona’s Legislature looks likely to pass a bill to make the path to college less challenging for U.S. military veterans. The measure would remove the barrier of requiring veterans to wait three years after the time of service to use military education benefits. The legislation also calls for changes making it easier for veterans of the armed forces to qualify for in-state tuition rates. Fulton Schools Professor Brad Allenby, founding chair of ASU’s Consortium for Emerging Technologies, Military Operations and National Security, says the new policy falls in line with ASU’s mission to help make higher education easier to access for all potential students. It would also boost acknowledgement of ASU’s as one of the more veteran-friendly universities, Allen says.
