DoD Releases Revised Tuition Assistance Memo

December 10, 2012

 

​The Department of Defense (DoD) on Thursday announced the release of the long-awaited memorandum of understanding (MOU) colleges and universities must sign to participate in DoD's Tuition Assistance program.

The revised MOU was published in the Dec. 7 Federal Register.

Effective March 1, 2013, to be eligible to participate in the DoD Tuition Assistance (TA) Program, institutions must have a signed DoD MOU and be on the ‘Participating Institutions’ list, which is posted on www.dodmou.com.

After March 1, an institution will not be able to enroll service members under the TA program until it has signed the MOU. Institutions that signed the first MOU do not need to sign the revised version, although they may do so if they choose.

ACE discussed the higher education community’s concerns with the original MOU with DoD last winter and in early 2012 and worked with the department to address these issues in the revised document.

A third MOU, incorporating additional changes based on the White House Principles of Excellence, is being drafted at DoD and is expected to be released for public comment sometime next year.
