Summary as introduced:
In-state tuition for spouses and dependents of military personnel. Eliminates various residency, income tax, and employment requirements governing eligibility for in-state tuition for spouses and dependents of military personnel residing in Virginia pursuant to military orders and claiming residency in another state. If the nonresident student is the child of an active member of the armed forces, the nonmilitary parent must be a registered voter in Virginia, and the child must have been claimed as a dependent by the member of the armed forces for income tax purposes. If the student is the spouse of an active member of the armed forces, then the student must be a registered Virginia voter. The period of eligibility for in-state tuition shall not exceed the period of residency required by military orders. These students would be counted as in-state students for admissions, enrollment, and tuition and fee revenue policy purposes. Under current law, spouses and dependents of military personnel must meet various residency, income tax, and employment requirements to be eligible for in-state tuition; military personnel are not currently granted in-state tuition.
