For those Veterans who still have their Montgomery GI Bill or Post-911 GI Bill, this is fantastic news.

Here’s the Article: All public colleges will soon offer veterans in-state tuition

Thanks to a new bill veterans won’t have to worry about paying out-of-state tuition at any public university. Provisions in the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 will require all public universities to offer in-state tuition to veterans making use of their GI Bill.

“The Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014 expands a veteran’s ability to maximize his or her Post-9/11 GI Bill benefit and use that benefit at any public school in the nation regardless of residency restrictions,”Jason Handsman of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America says. “This provision will benefit both states, by allowing them to retain new veteran residents who end their period of active service and decide to remain local, and veterans, who will no longer face financial constraints in attending the public school of their choice. This law is a win-win for the new greatest generation.”
