Tuition Waivers

Tacoma Community College is presently NOT offering tuition waivers to veterans receiving Chapter 30, 34, 1606 or 1607 benefits.*

* Please note that the new Post 9-11 GI Bill does include payment of some or all of the tuition based on the number of months served on active duty after September 11, 2001.

The college IS currently awarding tuition waivers to Chapter 35 beneficiaries (dependents, spouses and surviving dependents and spouses of disabled or deceased veterans). The specific guidelines recently enacted into law by the State of Washington authorize the tuition waivers for these categories of survivors and dependents:

  • The child or spouse of a veteran who served in active federal service and said veteran became totally disabled while engaged in active federal military or naval service, and has no earned income,
  • OR who is determined by the federal government to be a prisoner of war or missing in action,
  • OR who lost his or her life while engaged in active federal military or naval service;
  • AND if discharged, received an honorable discharge;
  • AND is a Washington resident

Please contact the Veterans Services Office in Bldg. 14 if you have any questions about this waiver program and or the procedures for applying for the waiver.
