Printer Friendly Page    Jul 18, 2013   

About: The University of Nebraska, the Nebraska State College System, and the Nebraska Community College System participate in a waiver of tuition program that will provide a credit of 100% of tuition charges (books and fees are NOT covered) for spouses & children of eligible Veterans; as set forth in NE Revised State Statute 80-411.
Eligibility: The waiver of Tuition is available to eligible dependents of Veterans who:
  • are rated permanently and totally disabled as a result of military service; or
  • have died of a service connected disability; or
  • have died subsequent to discharge as a result of injury or illness sustained while a member of the armed forces; or
  • have been classified as missing in action or a prisoner of war during armed hostilities while a member of the armed forces.
A dependent is a spouse or un-remarried widow(er), child, step-child, or adopted child of an eligible Veteran. The dependent must be a Nebraska resident & enrolled in one of the approved institutions, meeting residency requirements for in-state tuition.
The waiver is valid for ONE degree, diploma, or certificate from a community college; and ONE baccalaureate degree from the university or a state college. Receipt of the degree, diploma, or certificate shall precede receipt of such baccalaureate degree. Waiver of Tuition is not available for master, doctoral, or professional degrees.
A child dependent's eligibility will cease at the age of 26. The only exception is if the child dependent served on active duty with the armed forces after their 18th birthday, but before their 26th birthday. If this is the case, the student's eligibility for waiver will end 5 years after their 1st discharge from active duty, but shall not exceed beyond their 31st birthday.
