C.R.S. Section 23-7.4-102
Legislative declaration


The general assembly finds that:


Active duty members and veterans of the United States armed forces and Colorado National Guard provide an essential service to the nation and to the state of Colorado;


The families of service members often sacrifice personal goals due to frequent moves and deployments that disrupt or delay work and education, including higher education;


Veterans who return to civilian life and their dependents have opportunities to further their education in Colorado through the state system of community and technical colleges, local district colleges, and four-year institutions of higher education; and


Many active duty and veteran military members and their dependents have difficulty navigating the various state and federal laws relating to military benefits, including in-state tuition classification and state financial assistance programs.


Therefore, the general assembly declares that locating provisions of the state’s higher education statutes, where possible, into a single article of this title 23 relating to military members, veterans, and military dependents minimizes confusion and provides greater transparency concerning military benefits available in higher education.
