Military Tuition Assistance

What is Tuition Assistance?

Military Tuition Assistance is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Congress has given each service the ability to pay up to 100% for the tuition expenses of its members.  Please see your Education Services Officer (ESO) for additional information prior to enrolling in any education institution.

How Does it Work?

Each branch of service has its own eligibility criteria, payouts, restrictions and application process. The benefit is paid directly to the college by each respective branch of service. Payments are normally recieved 4-6 weeks after the start of the quarter.
