The Federal Military Tuition Assistance Program
Before you can apply for Federal Military Tuition Assistance, you’ll first need to visit your installation’s education office. There, you’ll receive college counseling to assist you in developing an education plan. Once that’s done, you can submit your Military Tuition Assistance request.
In order to be considered for Military Tuition Assistance, you’ll need to submit a completed authorization form to your Military University Representative at least two weeks before your class start date.
Depending on your branch, you may be eligible to receive up to 100% Federal Tuition Assistance from military service, with a $250 cap per semester hour and a $4,500 annual limit.
Veterans are strongly encouraged to apply for Financial Aid. How to Apply
