Military Tuition Assistance (TA)

Armed Forces Tuition Assistance (TA) 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% (Up to $250 per semester hour) for the tuition expenses of its members.

Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process and restrictions. This money is usually paid directly to the institution by the individual services.

Additionally, active-duty members may elect to also use the MGIB "top-up" with TA to cover high-cost courses.

TA is not a loan; it should be viewed as money you have earned just like your base pay.
