Tuition Assistance

Active duty soldiers are eligible for Military Tuition Assistance. However, the Department of Defense has placed certain requirements and restrictions on TA. You cannot get TA for a course that you have previously taken and if you have an Associate Degree, they do not pay for other courses at that level unless it is job related.

For more information regarding your tuition assistance benefits, visit or contact your Education Center Counselor.

Effective October 1, 2002, tuition assistance covers 100% of the tuition costs, up to $250.00 per semester hour or $4500.00 annually.

Family Members

Family members may not use Military Tuition Assistance. Service members eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill may be able to transfer benefits to a spouse or dependent children.  Additionally, family members of a deceased Active Duty Service Member or Retired Veteran may be eligible for certain dependent benefits. If you fall into this category you should contact the Veterans Affairs Office nearest you to make a claim.

Using Tuition Assistance and Federal Financial Aid

It is possible to use TA and Federal Financial Aid at the same time. However, keep in mind that both are Federal Programs and neither program is designed to cover all of your expenses. Each quarter we provide the Army Education Center a list of students using both TA and Pell Grant funds. After a review by the Army Education Center, it is possible that you could be asked to pay back Tuition Assistance if they feel it is in excess of schooling costs.

Tuition Assistance is provided and monitored through the GoArmyEd portal.  For more information, call
