BRAC Transferees to Receive Immediate In-State Tuition

BRAC In-State Tuition Rates

in Huntsville Brac Relocation

One of the main motivators behind recent construction growth at the University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH) is the expected influx of new students related to Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) job relocations. Upwards of 7,000 government jobs are being moved to the Huntsville area by the end of 2012. Thus in an effort to better serve the community, UAH has been busy with construction and planning to meet the increased educational demands imposed by this arrival of new high tech jobs.

According to Redstone Arsenal and UAH officials, the university is now waving the normal 1-year requirement to establish in-state residential status, thus all BRAC transferees whether military, civil service, contractor, and their dependent family members will be eligible for immediate in-state residential status at UAH. This is a huge savings in tuition costs especially in light of recent tuition increases across the state and the planned hike in out-of-state tuition upwards to 3 times the rate of in-state costs.

UAH President, David Williams, said this policy has been implemented to provide additional incentive to workers undecided about moving to Alabama once their jobs are transferred here. The University of Alabama Huntsville is an internationally recognized high-tech research university with strong programs in engineering, science, business, nursing and liberal arts.
