All Mich. Universities Charge Vets In-State Rates

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Military veterans can now qualify for in-state tuition from any of Michigan's 15 public universities regardless of where they live.

The University of Michigan, Michigan State University and Michigan Technological University recently changed their tuition policies for veterans living out of state. All Michigan universities already were providing in-state tuition to active-duty military members and their dependents.

State lawmakers earlier this year proposed constitutional amendments to force schools to give veterans in-state or in-district tuition rates. While universities have agreed voluntarily, many of Michigan's 28 community colleges are concerned it could cost them too much.

Community colleges charge in-district residents less because they pay property taxes to the school. Community colleges say their tuition is not as cost-prohibitive as university rates are for veterans regardless of where they live.
