The Armed Forces Tuition Assistance (TA) Program is a benefit paid to eligible members of the United States Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard for use toward tuition expenses. The funds are paid directly to the institution of higher education by the individual service. Each service has its own criteria for eligibility and its own application process.
Is TA a Loan?
No, the TA Program is not a loan program. It is money earned through military service.
What is the TA Benefit? How Much Can I Pay Toward My Education Expenses?
Again, the Tuition Assistance benefit varies per service program, but typically, active-duty military personnel can get 100 percent of their tuition and fees covered up to a certain amount per semester or quarter credit hour (capped at an annual amount). The TA benefit for Air Force personnel, for example, is 100 percent of tuition and fees, not to exceed $250 per semester credit hour or $166 per quarter credit hour and $4,500 per fiscal year.
