1. The Board of Regents of the University of Nevada may grant a waiver of registration fees and laboratory fees for any member of the active Nevada National Guard, including, without limitation, a recruit, who attends a school within the System as a full-time or part-time student. For the purpose of assessing fees and charges against a person to whom a waiver is granted pursuant to this subsection, including, without limitation, tuition charges pursuant to NRS 396.540, such a person shall be deemed to be a bona fide resident of this State.
2. To be eligible for a waiver pursuant to subsection 1, a person must:
(a) Be a member in good standing of the active Nevada National Guard, including, without limitation, a recruit, at the beginning of and throughout the entire semester for which the waiver is granted; and
(b) Maintain at least a 2.0 grade point average, on a 4.0 grading scale, each semester, or the equivalent of a 2.0 grade point average if a different grading scale is used.
3. The Board of Regents may request the Adjutant General to verify the membership in the active Nevada National Guard of a person who is seeking or has been granted a waiver of registration fees and laboratory fees pursuant to subsection 1. The Adjutant General shall, upon receiving such a request, notify the Board of Regents in writing concerning the status and dates of membership of that person in the active Nevada National Guard.
4. If a waiver is granted pursuant to subsection 1 for a recruit and the recruit does not enter full-time National Guard duty within 1 year after enlisting, the recruit shall reimburse the Board of Regents for all registration fees and laboratory fees waived on behalf of the recruit if the recruit’s failure to enter full-time National Guard duty is attributable to his or her own conduct.
5. As used in this section:
(a) “Full-time National Guard duty” has the meaning ascribed to it in 32 U.S.C. § 101(19).
(b) “Recruit” means a person who has enlisted in the Nevada National Guard but has not begun his or her required military duty.
