EBENSBURG – A PA Senate committee has approved legislation which would guarantee military families in PA receive in-state tuition at public colleges or universities even if a parent is deployed or reassigned out of state. House Bill 941 would ensure military families are guaranteed the in-state tuition rate as soon as a student enrolls or registers at a community college or submits an enrollment deposit to a four-year public college or university, even if their military parent is later reassigned to another state. Under current PA law, the U.S. Department of Defense found some students lost that in-state rate, due to a parent’s reassignment outside of the Commonwealth, between the day the student was accepted to the college or university and the first day of the semester. The bill passed the state House in June and is now before the full Senate for a vote.
