Tuition Assistance Policy changes effective 1JAN14 for all Army Soldiers:
On 1 January 2014, the Army’s Tuition Assistance (TA) policy will change.

The new policy will allow Soldiers to use TA after successful completion of the 1st first year of service after graduating from AIT, OCS or BOLC.

Eligibility will be for up to 16 semester hour credits per year and  TA can be used for a second, higher-level post-bachelor’s degree after completion of 10 years of service. The second degree time in service requirement applies to movement from a bachelor’s to a master’s degree and not from an associate’s to a bachelor’s degree; the 10-year requirement only applies if Army TA was used to pay for any portion of the undergraduate coursework.

Soldiers will continue to receive up to $250 per semester hour for up to 130 semester hours for completion of an associates or bachelor’s degree and up to 39 semester hours for a master's degree.

As stated in previous policy, Soldiers cannot use TA for a second equivalent degree, i.e., no second bachelor’s or master's degree. All courses must be part of an approved degree plan. TA cannot be used for first- professional degrees (PhD, MD or JD). In addition to DA adverse action flags, we will continue our policy to not allow TA for Soldiers who are flagged for APFT/AWCP.

NOTES:
1- SOLDIERS USING TA SHOULD CONFIRM THEY HAVE THE MOST UP TO DATE E-MAIL ADDRESS IN THEIR GAE ACCOUNT. This may be a personal email address the Soldier frequently uses.
2- E-MAILS GENERATED BY THE GOARMYED.COM SYSTEM CANNOT BE REPLIED TO.
3- FOR FURTHER ASSISTANCE WITH TA SOLDIERS SHOULD CONTACT THEIR LOCAL HIGHER EDUCATION VETERANS PROGRAM (HEVP) REP, THE GAE HELPDESK PHONE NUMBER, OR THE J1 EDUCATION OFFICE AT 651-282-4589 OR NG.MN.MNARNG.MBX.ASSETS-EDUCATION@MAIL.MIL

Monitor your e-mails for more information from GoArmyEd (GAE).


The FTA will fund up to 100% of tuition ONLY at a maximum amount of $4,000 per Fiscal Year and up to $250 per Semester Hour (SH) for degrees including Secondary School Diploma or it equivalency; Certificates (undergraduate, graduate, vocational or technical); Associates or Baccalaureate (undergraduate); Master's (graduate).
