As a result of the 2006 legislative session, Wyoming Statute 19-14-106 was expanded to allow for free tuition and fees for overseas combat veterans, surviving spouses and dependents. The Community College Commission was tasked to implement the benefit and reimburse the University of Wyoming and the seven community colleges. During the 2007 legislative session, the statue was amended to include reimbursement for Vietnam veterans.

This program's last semester of funding will be Spring 2017. All requests for reimbursement requests (turned in from the Community Colleges and the University of Wyoming) are due by March 24th, 2017. There will be no extensions and no consideration of late requests to this deadline.
