MILITARY TUITION ASSISTANCE (TA)
Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Congress has given each branch of the armed forces the ability to pay up to 100% for the tuition expenses of its members. Each has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application processes, and restrictions. This money is usually paid directly to the institution by the individual branch of service.
Active duty 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 earned just like base pay.
