August 14, 2013

​The Department of Defense (DoD) has issued a new proposed rule for its memorandum of understanding (MOU), which colleges and universities must sign to participate in DoD's Tuition Assistance program.

The revised MOU incorporates changes based on the Obama administration’s Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Veterans, Spouses, and Other Family Members, which the president signed in April 2012.

The principles are designed to ensure that service members, veterans and their dependents have the information they need to make good decisions about higher education and are protected from deceptive recruiting practices by institutions only interested in students for the federal funds they bring in.

Comments on the proposed rule are due Sept. 30.
