A waiver of tuition is an education benefit provided by the Commonwealth of Kentucky in recognition of the military service of certain Kentucky veterans. The tuition waiver is provided for children, stepchildren, adopted children, spouses, and unremarried widows & widowers. An approved tuition waiver means a student may attend any two-year schools, four-year schools or vocational technical schools that are operated and funded by the Kentucky Department of Education. Additional information about the tuition waiver program and how to apply is available at Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs requires each applicant utilizing their VA educational benefits to be formally accepted into an approved curriculum (Program of Study) before initial certification of attendance can be sent to the DVA.
