Free College for Firefighters in Texas

If you are a firefighter in Texas, you may be eligible for tuition exemption for a variety of fire service related programs at numerous public universities. The program for tuition exemption was initially enacted by the Texas legislator in 2009 for firefighters who are employed full-time as career firefighters. However, the bill was recently amended to include active volunteer firefighters as well.

The goal of the program is to encourage firefighters, both professional and volunteer, to take college courses designed to help them advance their profession. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is tasked with administrating the program. And is part of a larger initiative by the Texas legislature to increase the number of college educated individuals in the State.

The initiative is titled 60×30, which signifies a goal set forth by the Texas legislature to have 60 percent of the States young adults with a college level education by 2030.

I know many firefighters who would like to continue their education. However, the cost of attending is often a major roadblock. With the firefighter tuition exemption program, the financial roadblock of attending college can be greatly reduced.
