2(7) (a) 1., 38.24 (7) (a) 2. and 38.24 (8) (a) (intro.) of the statutes; relating to:
3eligibility for tuition fee remission for certain veterans and their spouses,
4surviving spouses, and children.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law provides remission of tuition for certain students attending the
University of Wisconsin (UW) System and technical college campuses. Under that
law, certain veterans and the spouses, children, or surviving spouses of certain
veterans are eligible for a full remission of tuition at the UW System and at the
technical colleges for 128 credits or eight semesters. For a veteran to be eligible, he
or she must have served under honorable conditions in certain types of active duty,
be a resident, and have entered service while a resident of this state. For the spouse,
surviving spouse, or child to be eligible, the veteran must have entered service while
a resident of this state and either died while on duty or have a service-connected
disability that is rated as 30 percent or more while a resident of this state.
This bill provides eligibility for the tuition remission for a veteran, and for the
spouse, surviving spouse, or child of a disabled or deceased veteran, if the veteran
was a resident of this state for at least ten continuous years after entering service
and before the student registers for college.

For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.
