Military/Veterans Tuition Classification

KSU strives to be one of the nation's top military friendly schools by offering a wide range of
veterans-focused educational and support services. We appreciate our military and veteran
students' service to our country. We strive to help every student receive in-state tuition within
the parameters of Board of Regents policy 4.3.2 Classification of Students for Tuition Purposes
and 7.3.4.1 Out-of-State Tuition Waivers as well as compliance with the Veterans Access,
Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014.

Students and their dependents returning to the state of Georgia following military service may be
considered a Resident of Georgia if their State of Legal Residence remained Georgia and
properly filed a Georgia tax return as a Georgia Resident for the tax year immediately preceding
the term the student is seeking in-state tuition. State of Legal Residence (SLR) is the state to
which the service member will pay taxes on the income earned in the military. Home State of
Record is not the same as State of Legal Residence as the military member does not have to
continue to pay taxes to their Home State of Record if the military member changes their State of
Legal Residence. If a veteran student's SLR is not Georgia they will not be classified as a
Resident until they meet all eligibility requirements for residency as outlined on the Georgia
Residency page. However, the student may qualify for the Recently Separated Military Out-ofState
Tuition Waiver.

Students stationed or assigned to an active duty military unit in the US Armed Forces, Georgia
National Guard, or US Reserves in Georgia may qualify for in-state tuition. If the student or their
parent/spouse's SLR is Georgia and meets all other eligibility requirements for residency the
student may be considered a Resident of Georgia. Documentation may be requested to verify. If
the student does not meet these eligibility requirements they may qualify for the Active Duty
Military Out-of-State Tuition Waiver or the Georgia National Guard/Reservist Out-of-State
Tuition Waiver.
