Tuition Assistance and New Rules

The first issue that came to light here at CCME is the new guidelines for Military Tuition Assistance.  The rule will require that programs be approved in the state where the student resides.  So if an online program from Lamar has a student in Florida, Lamar has to be approved in Florida for Tuition Assistance to pay. 

That's fine for the big guys, but Lamar doesn't have the money or the time to apply to every single state - so it might leave only the big guys (like Phoenix which has campuses in most states) to get bigger.  Don't think that was the intent of the new rules, so we can only hope that sanity reigns supreme by the summer.
