Veteran Tuition Waivers
Veterans who served for at least 90 days active duty during wartime, honorably discharged or discharged under honorable conditions, and who are domiciled in Connecticut at the time of acceptance for admission at public colleges in Connecticut may be eligible for free tuition of General Fund courses. Connecticut National Guard members can also receive tuition waivers. Active duty military stationed in Connecticut, including spouse and dependents, are now eligible for in-state tuition at Connecticut Community Colleges.
To use the tuition waiver, a veteran must submit a copy of their DD-214 to the QVCC Veterans Affairs Office for evaluation. National Guard members must apply to their unit for a DD-2384. Those eligible for a Guard waiver must reapply with their units each semester and have the waivers mailed to the QVCC Business Office prior to registration. These waivers do not cover Extension Fund, Summer, Winter Intersession or non-credit courses, student fees, or books.
