In addition to federal programs such as the GI Bill, there are veterans’ benefits programs provided by the states. The following are the Nebraska veterans’ benefits programs for education in 2018.
Dependents of an eligible veteran may be authorized for a waiver to cover 100% of tuition charges and tuition-related fees to the University of Nebraska campuses, Nebraska state colleges and Nebraska community colleges. Applications are submitted to the Nebraska Department of Veterans’ Affairs by contacting the County Veterans’ Service Office nearest the applicant’s place of residence.
The University of Nebraska and all state and community colleges may waive tuition for eligible children of veterans. Children of members who died on active duty, as a result of active duty, or who are permanently and totally disabled as a result of active duty may be eligible.
Reservist Tuition Credit
Nebraska residents who are enlisted members of a Nebraska-based unit of the Active Selected Reserve may be eligible for a 50% tuition credit to the University of Nebraska campuses, Nebraska state colleges and Nebraska community colleges. This program is allowed 200 new applicants each calendar year.
