 •If a child to whom hours have been delegated fails to use all assigned hours, the veteran or conservator of the hours may reassign the unused hours to another dependent.
 •Only one person may use the Hazlewood Exemption during a given semester and all eligible recipients use the same pool of 150 credit hours of resident tuition and fees exempted to include the veteran.
 •The Hazlewood Exemption is considered to be a financial resource for financial aid purposes and, as such, may reduce a student’s need based grant and scholarship eligibility.
