HB 488 of 2014 requires that Ohio public institutions of higher learning provide veteran students with preference in scheduling courses.

Per HB 488, Zane State College offers priority registration and scheduling preference to veterans, current members of the military, and dependents who are using education benefits through the Department of Veteran Affairs.

Course schedule preference means that veterans and dependent students who are admitted to all courses for credit offered at Zane State College are able to start registering for courses sooner than students with the same class standing.  Zane State College’s goal is to ensure that veterans and military service students are moving through their academic programs in alignment with the time limits on their benefits and to recognize their service.

Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded.

To comply with the new Department of Defense policy, Zane State College will return any unearned TA funds on a prorate basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. These funds are returned to the military Service branch.

Instances when a Service member stops attending due to a military service obligation, the educational institution will work with the affected Service member to identify solutions that will not result in student debt for the returned portion.

Located in the lower level of College Hall, the Veterans Resource Center is especially designed for veterans. The center houses information from area veterans service agencies, resources for career planning, and a dedicated computer lab.

The VRC also features a lounge with recliners, TV, dining area, refrigerator and microwave, all for the exclusive use of veterans - it is a place where you can feel comfortable as you make your transition to student life.
