Hoosier veterans and their families may be eligible for a variety of financial aid options, says the Indiana Commission for Higher Education. The Commission administers seven financial aid programs specifically for veterans, public safety officers and their families, including children and spouses.
Ahead of Veterans Day 2021, the Commission and state of Indiana are reminding Hoosier veterans and their families of the student financial aid options available, including up to 100 percent of tuition and regularly assessed fees at Indiana public colleges and universities. In 2019, these programs disbursed more than $32 million.
“Indiana’s veterans and public safety officers play a valuable role in preserving our state’s freedom and safety,” said Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education Teresa Lubbers. “Indiana’s tuition and fee exemption programs provide the brave men and women, and their children and spouses, with peace of mind when it comes to affording higher education.”
