The University of Colorado's Board of Regents on Wednesday passed a measure directing chancellors to start a pilot program that will grant in-state tuition to the dependents of military personnel if they've attended high school in Colorado for at least two years.

The measure, sponsored by Regent Sue Sharkey, R-Windsor, received unanimous approval from the board.

Prior to the vote, Sharkey told the board that the children of military personnel have transitioned from "one school to another throughout their K-12 education."
