The University understands the important role that family members play in the support and success of our veterans. The Military and Veterans Resource Center (MVRC) extends its services to those family members in order to assist them in reaching their academic goals.
With the passing of the new Post 9/11 GI Bill more and more veterans are taking advantage of the opportunity to "transfer" their educational benefits to one or more of their dependents. The veteran must submit the application online at www.gibill.va.gov or complete the form in our office located in the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), Building 38 , Room 147. The VA, NOT the University, is the approval authority for the request.
As of 1 July 2009, members of the Armed Forces serving on active duty for a period of more than 30 days will be charged in-state tuition. This also applies to the spouse and dependent children of the service member. House Resolution 4137 ensures that service members are not penalized for relocating for military service. If you are currently serving in Florida or if your permanent duty station or home of record is Florida, you will be charged in-state tuition for the duration for your continuous enrollment. The student simply needs to complete a Residency Form available in the Admissions Office.
