BANGOR, Maine (AP) - The University of Maine System is considering a proposal to reduce tuition for military veterans’ dependents living outside the state.

The system would offer in-state tuition to all veterans’ dependents who qualify for the GI Bill, bringing it in line with new federal requirements for public colleges and universities.

If approved Monday, the policy will take effect in the spring semester.

System officials said there are currently 30 veterans’ dependents paying out-of-state tuition. In-state tuition rates are generally one-third to one-half of rates paid by out-of-state students.
