INDIANAPOLIS - The House passed a bill Tuesday that would require state colleges and universities to create a Combat-to-College program if they have more than 200 veterans enrolled in their schools.
The legislation requires the schools to provide centralized locations for admissions, registration and financial administration services for students, as well as develop programs for academic guidance.
Other provisions include reasonable accommodations for disabled students at the fitness facility, counseling services for those suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder and job search programs.
The bill has already passed the Senate and now moves to the governor's desk for his consideration.
