This bill provides that a State college or university created pursuant to chapter 64 of Title 18A of the New Jersey Statutes, Rutgers, the State University, the University of Medicine and Dentistry and the New Jersey Institute of Technology may not collect tuition and fees charged for the Fall 2011 semester and subsequent semesters from the parent, spouse, child, or other eligible dependent of a New Jersey resident who is killed, officially listed as "Missing in Action" by the United States Department of Defense, or totally and permanently disabled as certified by the United States Department of Veterans' Affairs as a consequence of Operation Noble Eagle, Operation Enduring Freedom or Operation Iraqi Freedom, defined in the bill as a "dependent student." A college or university required by the bill to forego collecting tuition and fees may submit to the Higher Education Student Assistance Authority an application for reimbursement for the tuition and fees incurred by the dependent student. The bill also provides that a county college or an independent four-year college or university may voluntarily decide to forego collecting tuition and fees for dependent students. In this case, the institution could apply to the authority for reimbursement up to the amount currently charged for tuition and fees by any State college or university for a full-time student who is a New Jersey resident, or for the actual tuition and fees charged, whichever is less. The provisions in the bill would expire once scholarships are available under the "Military Survivors Scholarship Fund Act," which is to be established under separate legislation.
