The Sierra College Board of Trustees will consider a new policy at its June 10 meeting to provide in-state tuition to any honorably discharged veteran residing in California.

The new policy, believed to be the first by a California community college, is consistent with the college's efforts to support returning veterans, including a recently opened Sierra College Veterans Center and support services that have resulted in 800 veterans attending the college.

The per-credit cost for in-state tuition is $46 and covered by the GI Bill.
