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 will be funded through Spring 2018. All requests for reimbursement (turned in from the community colleges and the University of Wyoming) are due after the drop date of the semester being reimbursed has passed. Financial Aid offices will get more information via email from the program manager. There will be no extensions and no consideration of late requests to this deadline.
