Military spouses continue to pay the in-state tuition rate as long as they remain continuously enrolled at the institution, even if the service member is reassigned outside the state. If you have any problem obtaining in-state tuition, you are encouraged to contact your university’s financial aid, registrar, or Veterans Affairs office.
