We applaud Oregon State for signing the memorandum of understanding with the Department of Defense. Signing this memorandum will provide tuition assistance paid for by the Department of Defense for 115 Oregon State students who are in the armed forces.
This assistance is designed to cover tuition costs for active duty service members, including some from the reserve and the National Guard. The memorandum not only aids servicemen and women with tuition assistance, but it is designed to protect such men and women from being taken advantage of.
Now these men and women will continue to be provided with the assistance they need for spring term.
The new rules may cause some extra work at first, there are still some kinks to work out, but the money it provides will go a long way.
We’re happy with Oregon State’s decision to sign the memorandum.
