Ozark College Tuition Information for Veterans

Ozarka College participates in the Post 9/11 Yellow Ribbon Program. To those Post 9/11 Veterans who meet the eligibility criteria set forth by the Department of Veterans Affairs, Ozarka College will waive 50% of the out-of-state portion of tuition, and the VA will match the remaining 50% of the out-of-state portion of the tuition. In addition, new legislation directs state institutions to charge in-state tuition to veterans residing in state who meet the criteria as set forth in H.R.3230 "Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014."

"(Sec. 702) Directs the Secretary to disapprove, for purposes of the All-Volunteer Force and the Post-9/11 Educational Assistance programs, courses of education provided by a public educational institution of higher education (IHE) that charges veterans living in the state higher tuition and fees than it charges in-state residents, regardless of the veteran's state of residence. Makes this provision applicable to: (1) veterans who were discharged or released from at least 90 days of active service less than three years before their date of enrollment in the applicable course, (2) family members eligible for such assistance due to their relationship to such veterans, and (3) courses that commence on or after July 1, 2015. Prohibits the Secretary from disapproving a public IHE's course on the grounds that the IHE conditions a veteran's receipt of in-state tuition rates on such veteran: (1) demonstrating an intent, by means other than physical presence, to establish residency in the state; or (2) satisfying other requirements not related to the establishment of residency." REFERENCE: US Congress Bill

Ozarka College maintains a refund policy for veterans or other eligible persons (war orphans, children of disabled veterans, etc.) that is consistent with all students studying at Ozarka College. This policy does not extend to books, supplies, and consumables which are purchased by the student and remain the property of the student.
