MILITARY TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
If you're currently an active military member, using your Active Duty Tuition Assistance is easy. Simply choose your program of study and have it approved by your base education officer. Upon approval, fill out a Tuition Assistance form for each individual course in the program you're attending and bring the forms to our military education specialist at your campus of choice.
*The Montgomery GI Bill cannot be used in conjunction with Tuition Assistance. This rule applies to all active duty members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guards.
