May 16, 2014

​The Department of Defense has published the final memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the Tuition Assistance (TA) program. Colleges and universities will need to sign the MOU to participate in the program.

The draft rule issued last year contained some provisions that ACE was concerned about and submitted comments asking for clarification on several points.

The new MOU was written in response to the Obama administration’s April 2012 “Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Veterans, Spouses and Other Family Members.” This was an effort to make certain that service members have the information, support and protections they need to receive a quality postsecondary education, as well as ensure proper oversight of TA dollars.

All institutions participating in the TA program, even if they have signed an earlier iteration of the MOU, will need to sign the latest version.
