Tuition Assistance

Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit offered to service members to assist with the cost of tuition.  TA typically covers 100% of tuition, up to the $250 cap per credit hour. Our GPS undergraduate tuition rate is reduced to $250 per credit hour.  For additional information on amounts covered by TA and who is eligible, according to branch of service, please visit the Military – Tuition Assistance Program website.

Effective October 1, 2011, all Army National Guard soldiers will use GoArmyEd to request Federal TA (including those on Drilling status).  This applies to any courses starting after October 1, 2011.
