Serving our country gets one veteran higher tuition

The Blaze reports:

A University of Michigan student who took a break from studies to serve four years in the U.S. Navy and then returned to academics is saying the school has a policy that is discriminating against veterans.

Sophomore Brian Stone told WIDV when he returned from service to the university, he was billed for out-of-state tuition, adding $10,000.

“And then I got a letter in the mail saying that due to my overseas service that I may be considered an out-of-state resident. I had a $6,000 bill that was left for me,” Stone said according to WIDV.

“We’re not happy about this policy. We think it pushes veterans away,” he continued. “Actually, we’ve lost 40 percent of our veterans this semester at the University of Michigan Dearborn just because of this.”

Stone, as part of the Student Veterans Association, asked university leaders Thursday to change this policy. Facebook Fark Furl
