Connecticut Tuition Waiver Program
Charter Oak State College honors the service that veterans have provided to our state and to our country by adopting a policy to offer a 50% tuition waiver for Connecticut veterans matriculated at Charter Oak State College.
Connecticut veterans eligible for the course fee waiver benefit will be compliant with the following Connecticut Veterans Waiver requirements:
- 90 consecutive days of active duty (active duty for training not applicable).
- An honorable discharge from the U.S. Armed Forces.
- A copy of Member-4 DD-214 (with required dates of service).
- A status of matriculated student (officially accepted and current college fees). College fees and other applicable fees must be paid each registration period.
Eligibility ceases upon withdrawal, dismissal, and/or graduation.
If a veteran elects to receive benefits under Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (Post 9/11 GI Bill), the benefits are applied first, and the tuition waiver applies to the balance.
All veterans are encouraged to contact their VA representative or consult the VA website to determine their eligibility and available benefits.
