Tuition Assistance (TA)

Military Tuition Assistance (TA), combined with reduced military rates and other military programs, can cover the majority of the education expense for military members. Members who have eligibility must work with their education advisor, ESO, or counselor within their respective military service prior to enrolling to obtain approval for TA. View the Tuition Assistance page for more information by branch of service.
