Military Branches Reinstate Tuition Assistance Programs

April 15, 2013

 

​The Army, Air Force and Marines have reopened their Tuition Assistance (TA) programs to service members following a congressional mandate in last month’s FY 2013 continuing resolution.  

The Army, Air Force and Marines announced in March that, due to the sequester, they would suspend the TA program, which helps service members further their educations and their military careers. In most branches, that tab reaches $4,500 per year for each service member who takes classes. 

But later that month, on March 21, Congress voted to order the Defense Department to locate the necessary funding to relaunch the TA programs across all branches of the military.
