Our Best Answer - As a dependent of a Veteran, how can I be eligible for a waiver for non-resident fees?


Waiver of Non-Resident Fees for Dependents

A waiver of non-resident fees may apply to you if you meet any one of the following criteria:

  • An individual using transferred Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits who lives in the state in which the institution of higher learning is located (regardless of his/her formal state of residence) and enrolls in the school within 3 years of the transferor’s discharge from a period of active duty service of 90 days or more.
  • Anyone described above while he/she remains continuously enrolled (other than during regularly scheduled breaks between courses, semesters, or terms) at the same school.  This person must have enrolled in the school prior to the expiration of the three year period following discharge or release as described above and must be using educational benefits either Post-9/11 GI Bill® or Montgomery GI Bill – Active Duty.
  • Anyone using transferred Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits who lives in the state where the higher education institution is located and the transferor is a member of the uniformed service who is serving on active duty.
  • Anyone using benefits under the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship who lives in the state where the higher education institution is located (regardless of his/her formal state of residence).
