Tuition Assistance (TA)

What is Tuition Assistance (TA)?

It is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Armed Forces. Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service time, application process and restrictions. Money is paid directly to the institution by the individual service branch.

How to get Started

Each military branch has its own TA application process. Visit local installation education center for more information.

* Your service's education center must approve your military tuition assistance before you enroll in a course. *

Upon Approval

The VRC will need a copy of your approval letter. After, the VRC will coordinate with the Controller's office to ensure proper channels are met.

Selecting Courses

It is highly recommended that all course enrollments are coordinated with a member of our Advising Department.

Keep in mind that TA will not fund your college courses, and you will have to reimburse any funds already paid, if any of the following situations occur:

  • Leaving the service before the course ends
  • Quitting the course for reasons other than personal illness, military transfer or mission requirements
  • Failing the course
