Students who may be covered under the Veterans' portion of the CVO program are:
• Certain graduates of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Children's Home;
• Children of a Purple Heart recipient or wounded veteran;
• Children of a deceased or disabled veteran
• Children of a POW/MIA from Vietnam War.
The veteran must meet certain Indiana residency requirements, and the child must be the biological child or legally adopted dependent child of the veteran. The student must be regularly admitted as an in-state student to a public college and must maintain satisfactory academic progress while receiving the fee remission. Additional program restrictions may apply and eligibility is limited to a maximum of 124 credit hours.
Additionally, students are required to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for each academic year. For maximum consideration for all types of student financial aid, submit the FAFSA by the March 10 priority application receipt deadline. At a minimum, SFA recommends submitting the FAFSA at least two weeks prior to the start of the semester.
