BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana University plans to begin offering in-state tuition to qualifying veterans and family members.

IU’s military and veterans services coordinator Margaret Baechtold estimates 140 current students from the more than 1,400 GI Bill beneficiaries across all IU campuses could qualify for the lower tuition rate.

A new federal law makes the in-state tuition rate available to certain nonresident veterans and family members receiving Post 9/11 GI Bill or Montgomery GI Bill benefits.

Veterans or family members using transferred benefits must enroll within three years of the veteran’s discharge from at least 90 days of active-duty service. The federal law complements an existing state statute that provides in-state tuition rates for certain students including current nonresident members of the Indiana National Guard.
