offered by the institution for no credit if there is space available for the veteran in the course subject to any other requirements of the program or policy . An institution may set and collect a fee of no more than $10 per audited course for up to three courses audited by a veteran per academic semester. The institution may permit a veteran to audit additional courses for a different fee . An institution may develop policies governing permitting veterans to audit a course. The general assembly encourages each institution that does not have a program or policy that permits a person to audit a course offered by the institution for no credit to permit a veteran to audit a course for no credit. A veteran auditing a course is not an eligible student for the purposes of receiving a college opportunity fund stipend.
