(VINCENNES) - Vincennes University officials hope a new Indiana law will help build on its role as a top school for military personnel.

The Vincennes Sun-Commercial reports the bill signed by Gov. Mike Pence grants in-state tuition rates to honorably discharged veterans and active duty National Guard members as long as they enroll in an Indiana state college within a year of settling here.

VU military education director Matt Schwartz says many veterans return to Indiana after being stationed elsewhere for more than a year and have been forced to pay out-of-state tuition rates. He says the new bill allows veterans who enroll within a year of their discharge to pay in-state rates and gives them 12 months to establish an Indiana address.

The law takes effect July 1.
