Military Tuition Assistance
Please note, military Tuition Assistance (TA) is a unique and distinct source of financial aid for Active duty service members. TA is applied to your account first and then the PELL grant if applicable. TA is available for select service members based on their current military status. Consult with your local educational service officer for more information. Once Approved, TA users, please contact the Cashier’s Office if you plan on using TA for the current semester.
