Military Education Benefits

With the goal of being known as "America's Most Veteran-Friendly State," Virginia provides many unique state benefits to supplement and expand on federal benefits for military families. The information here is designed to help military personnel and their families understand and utilize those educational benefits and resources available in the Commonwealth. In most cases, the student's point of contact for these financial benefits is the institution's domicile or admissions office.

In-State Provision for Civilians Employed at a Military Base

Virginia law allows employers to enter into a Special Arrangement Contract with a Virginia college or university that will permit an out-of-state employee to obtain in-state tuition rates if the employer agrees to be held responsible for the tuition charges. While this provision is not necessary for most military members, it is an option for civilians working on a military base. Please note that use of this provision is restricted to the employee only. For more information, contact your Virginia public institution's Admissions Office, or click here to see the provision in the Code of Virginia § 23-7.4:2.F.
