Military Tuition Assistance

Armed Forces Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The Department of Defense has directed a uniform tuition assistance fiscal policy across the military services. Currently, the established semester hour cap is $250 and each soldier has an annual ceiling of $4,500. Military services will pay 100 per cent of the tuition and authorized fees charged by a college up to the established semester hour cap and annual ceiling.
