HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – (July 21, 2004) – New Virginia legislation provides eligibility for in-state tuition at public colleges for spouses and children of active-duty military personnel in their first year of assignment in Virginia.

At Tidewater Community College, in-state tuition is $63.70 per credit hour while out-of-state residents pay $209.65 per credit hour.

TCC will host open houses for military families at all four campuses July 28 and 31 to explain the new in-state tuition benefit and how to apply for it.
