New York Gives Tuition Break to Veterans

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York is encouraging veterans to go back to school and making it easier for the families of service members who relocate to the state.

A new state law signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday will give veterans in-state tuition rates at state colleges and universities even if they wouldn’t otherwise qualify.

Another provision makes it easier for children of service members who are posted to New York to transfer their records to a new school.

The law also allows military spouses to automatically transfer a real-estate, cosmetology or other professional license from another state.

Cuomo says the state has a responsibility to honor veterans, service members and their families by making it easier for them to succeed in New York state.
