Overseas Combat Veteran and Surviving Spouses/Dependent Tuition Benefit
As a result of the 2006 legislative session, Wyoming Statute 19-14-106 was expanded to allow for free tuition and fees for overseas combat veterans, surviving spouses and dependents. The Community College Commission was tasked to implement the benefit and reimburse the University of Wyoming and the seven community colleges. During the 2007 legislative session, the statue was amended to include reimbursement for Vietnam veterans.
