Good News for Active Duty Military and Spouses in Virginia
New legislative actions bring tuition help for active duty students in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Effective July 1, 2011, active-duty military members can establish immediate residency in Virginia to qualify for in-state tuition. Formerly, there was a one-year waiting period.
In related action, Commonwealth legislators voted to allow active duty dependents to keep their already authorized in-state tuition eligibility if they move outside Virginia to continue living with the service member.
