Defense Department Issues FAQ on Tuition Assistance Program Memorandum of Understanding

October 24, 2011

 

​In March of this year, the Department of Defense (DoD) issued new requirements for continued participation in the tuition assistance (TA) program, which provides up to $4,500 in tuition costs for eligible service members.

Under the new rules, institutions will be required to sign a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) prior to Jan. 1, 2012, in order to maintain their eligibility to participate in the TA program next year.

Despite a strong interest in continuing to assist service members through the TA program, several institutions have raised concerns with the MOU's provisions. DoD issued a document last week providing important clarifications regarding the MOU provisions.

More information on the MOU can be found at www.dodmou.com.
