(BLOOMINGTON) - Starting in fall 2015, Indiana University will offer in-state tuition on all campuses to veterans and their families who qualify under a new federal law signed this summer.

The Choice Act says public colleges and universities must offer in-state tuition at all academic levels and programs to these newly qualified students or not accept any GI Bill funding, said Margaret Baechtold, military and veterans services coordinator at IU.

An estimates 140 current students from the more than 1,400 GI Bill beneficiaries across all IU campuses could qualify for the lower tuition rate.

Veterans or family members using transferred benefits must enroll within three years of the veteran's discharge from at least 90 days of active-duty service. The federal law complements an existing state statute that provides in-state tuition rates for certain students including current nonresident members of the Indiana National Guard.
