Tuition Assistance (TA) Program Overview

Used by permission of

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% for the tuition expenses of its members.

Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application processes, and restrictions.

This money is usually paid directly to the institution by the individual services.

Additionally, members may elect to use the MGIB "top-up" in addition to their service provided 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. 

More information on applying for Tuition Assistance is available on's Tuition Assistance (TA) Program Overview web page.
