About: The biological or legally adopted child(ren) of eligible disabled Indiana veterans may be eligible for remission of fees at any state-supported post secondary school or university in the State of Indiana. All students must submit a copy of their birth certificate or adoption papers with their application. Applications submitted without the appropriate documentation will be returned to the student.
Note to legally adopted children: This applies at any age as long as the child was adopted by age 18 and the child is a resident of Indiana. The remission of fees/CDV program is a State of Indiana provided program and is not the federal GI Bill education program. CDV students can only use this benefit at a state supported university/college. Each college/university has its own student residency requirements.
The rules are:
Eligible wartime dates are:
Recognized wartime periods after June 30, 2011(including a wartime period which began earlier but continued into the eligible period during which the veteran served).
The Remission of Fees is good for 124 semester hours of education and may be used for undergraduate level work only. Depending upon the level of disability of the veteran the amount remitted can be as much as 100% of tuition and all mandatory fees. Ref: IC 21-14-4-1.
Please Note: The remission of fees/CDV program is a State of Indiana provided program and is not the federal GI Bill education program. CDV students can only use this benefit at a state supported university/college in Indiana.
The following also applies:
Students not reaching these goals will be placed on probation and must reach the requisite GPA by the next semester or its equivalent.
Children of veterans rated 80% service-connected disabled or higher by the VA or whose veteran parent is/was a recipient of the Purple Heart Medal will receive 100% fee remission.
Children of veterans rated less than 80% service-connected disabled will receive 20% fee remission plus the disability rating of the veteran.
If the disability rating of the veteran changes after the beginning of the academic semester, quarter or other period, the change in the disability rating shall be applied beginning with the immediately following academic semester, quarter or other period.
