Veterans would receive credit for courses taken during service or for passing equivalency exams.

Colleges and universities also would be required to offer in-state tuition to any veteran accepted to the program. Veterans from other states would be required to teach at an Indiana public school for one year.

Both the full House and governor must also approve the bill before it becomes law.
