If you would like to apply, submit a copy of your most recent DD-214 (long form) and the Returning Heroes Education Act Application to the Enrollment Services Department, Room 1113 in the Administration Building. Your documentation will be reviewed to determine if you meet the criteria to be considered for reduced tuition.
