Military 学费 Assistance (TA)
All four service branches and the U.S. 海岸警卫队 offer financial assistance for voluntary, off-duty education programs in support of service members’ personal and professional goals.

Your service branch pays your tuition directly to the school.  Service members need to first check with an education counselor for the specifics involving TA by visiting their local installation education office or by going online to a virtual education center.

To be eligible for TA, an enlisted service member must have enough time remaining in service to complete the course for which he or she has applied.  After the completion of a course, an officer using TA must fulfill a service obligation that runs parallel with – not in addition to – any existing service obligation.

Keep in mind that TA will not fund your college courses and you will have to reimburse any funds already paid if any of the following situations occur:

  • Leaving the service before the course ends
  • Quitting the course for reasons other than personal illness, military transfer or mission requirements
  • 不及格课程

TA Application Process
Each military branch has its own TA application from and procedures.  To find out how to get started visit your local installation education center, go online to a virtual education center or click on the following links for each service branch:
