Same-sex military spouses get in-state UNC tuition

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — The University of North Carolina system has directed that in-state tuition be charged to the same-sex spouses of military personnel as long as the couple married in a state that recognizes same-sex marriage.

Fayetteville State spokesman Jeff Womble told the Fayetteville Observer that the school has been directed by the UNC system to offer in-state tuition to such spouses to comply with federal regulations.

In-state tuition is less expensive than that paid by out-of-state students.

North Carolina does not sanction same-sex marriage. But that conflicts with federal rules that require colleges to offer in-state tuition to all military spouses, regardless of sexual orientation.

Fayetteville State had asked the UNC system for clarification on the conflict.
