Onondaga announces that effective with the summer 2013 semester, veterans honorably discharged in New York State whose legal residence is out-of-state, will pay the in-state tuition rate to attend Onondaga. As part of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, the Department of Veterans Affairs would pay the out-of-state tuition rate. In August of 2011 the law changed and the VA would no longer cover the additional charges. The non-profit Students Veterans Advocacy Group estimated 250,000 veterans nationwide were impacted by the change, including soldiers with out-of-state residence who were honorably discharged from Fort Drum and decided to enroll at Onondaga. Onondaga has a long history of serving student-veterans, and has been named a “Military Friendly School” by G.I. Jobs Magazine each of the last two years.
The tuition announcement was be made during the 6th annual Operation: Start Up & Grow event, a business conference for veterans and members of the military community who want to start or expand their small business.
