Tuition and Fee Exemption for Purple Heart Recipient

A person who entered active duty from a permanent home address in Indiana, received the Purple Heart Medal and received an honorable discharge, is eligible to pay the resident tuition rate at a state supported college or university and, if otherwise possesses the requisite academic qualifications, is entitled to Tuition and Fee Exemption for 124 semester credit hours. If the student receives financial aid through any other source, the remission of fees is adjusted accordingly. Reference IC 21-14-10 for complete details and criteria.

Applications:

Applications are located on our "Forms" page.

A note about in-state residency:

Attendance at state-supported colleges or universities while using the Tuition and Fee Exemption program requires that students receive in-state tuition and fees at the school they are attending.
