U of m has used the fact that some vets who have served more then six months oversea should then pay out of state tuition because residency status changed.
Please tell me MSU doesn't do that.
Nothing could be lower. No link just saw it on channel 4.
Edit: not true at all. See PRStoetzer's post below.

I'm not going to say for certain that MSU doesn't do that but I've seen clips on BTN of them offering help of some sort to returning veterans
And here's a link from Channel 4 in Detroit

That would violate federal law, IIRC.
Of course, so did Ed Martin, soooooo......
Thank you, Denicos.
Yes it would, while you serve overseas you still have a perm address in the US.

I've never used the term "scum" before but if true there is some real scum at scUM.
They hate America
I don't care but just curious as to why the down vote? Maybe I should have ignored the story?
Just another reason to hate that shithole.
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
Yet illegal aliens get in state tuition in many states.
Question authority. Power to the people

Didn't do it so can't tell you, but it's possible the down vote was for scUM taking the action listed in the OP.
there is zero chance this policy will hold up after the media and politicians get hold of it. especially state congress critters, since they control funding for the university, and the ones who are ambitious love to get their name on TV supporting veterans. expect a bill in the next couple weeks to address it.
vets are residents at the base they are stationed at iirc, overseas duty is just a deployment, so i think any vet would run in to this. you only need 6 months for residency though, so it's a pretty low bar to clear for vets.
BURN U-M DOWN ALREADY!!!

outside the scope.

Have to cover costs of feeding football coach and buying fabric to make basketball coach's enormous shirts.
Personally I think there should be a 3rd tier of tuition for vets that's 50% (or less) of the in state rate. This is completely ridiculous and deplorable.
laconophilia is everywhere...
We should make a list of folks that apparently UM dislikes. I'll start:
- The handicapped
Here are the guidelines:
"3. Michigan Residents and Absences From the State
You may be able to retain your eligibility for resident classification under the conditions listed below if you are domiciled in Michigan as defined by University Residency Classification Guidelines and leave the state for certain types of activities. However, if you have been absent from the state, you must file an Application for Resident Classification by the appropriate filing deadline to request resident classification and demonstrate your eligibility.
a. Absence for Active Duty Military Service (U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Officers in the Public Health Service), Non-Administrative Missionary Work, Peace Corps, AmeriCorps, or Similar Philanthropic Work
If you are domiciled in Michigan at the time of entry into active military duty, missionary work, Peace Corps, or similar service, you are presumed to retain your eligibility for resident classification as long as you are on continuous active duty or in continuous service and continuously claim Michigan as the state of legal residence for income tax purposes. If you are a dependent child of such an individual, you are presumed to be eligible for resident classification provided: (1) you are coming to the University of Michigan directly from high school or have been continuously enrolled in college since graduating from high school, and (2) you have not claimed residency for tuition purposes elsewhere."
Perhaps these veterans claimed another state as their state of legal residence for income tax purposes while they were in the military?
If they did that (and some active duty military choose to) then he was no longer a resident. Can't tell from the article but that would be the only acceptable reason and even then they should make an exception.
Shouldn't matter IMO. They're probably advised to handle taxes a certain way by the military branch they're a part of.
I agree there should be an exception. I'm sure If I entered the military when I was 18, I'd be pretty excited to "reside in" Florida while I was in without realizing that would prevent me from getting in-state tuition at colleges back home.
I am thinking they are using there Military Base as their address. But I agree still messed up.
Not at UM.
