The University of Connecticut’s board of trustees voted Wednesday to expand a program that gives tuition breaks to some veterans and their dependents.

The program provides tuition at in-state rates to veterans, regardless of whether they are Connecticut residents.

“Many veterans are older than their classmates and have had trying experiences in their lives that most of us will never have to face,” said UConn President Susan Herbst. “The more we can do to assist them and insure their success at the university, the better.”
