Non-resident U.S. military personnel on active duty in California (except those assigned for educational purposes to State supported institutions of higher education) are granted a waiver of non-resident tuition until they are discharged from their military service. Their dependents are also granted a waiver.

Effective July 1, 2015, The Veterans’ Access to Care Through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 directs colleges and universities to charge in-state tuition to all veterans and their families who are receiving Veteran Education Benefits, regardless of residency. This law also extends to the Post-9/11 GI Bill® to dependents of service members killed in action.

Veterans should visit the Ohlone College Veterans Affairs Office website.

“GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.”

 

Happy female graduate with Ohlone College President Gari Browning.
