Tuition Assistance Policy changes effective 5AUG18 for all Army Soldiers:
On August 5, 2018, the Army’s Tuition Assistance (TA) policy will change.

The new policy will allow Soldiers to use TA after successful completion of AIT, OCS or BOLC.

Soldier eligibility for FTA will be determined by two different tier levels based on their previous civilian education level.

Tier 1: Soldiers who have a) not attained a bachelor's degree and wish to pursue an undergraduate certificate/diploma, or associate or bachelor's degree; or b) have previously attained a bachelor's degree without the use of TA and who wish to pursue an undergraduate or graduate certificate/diploma or master's degree.

Soldiers establish tier 1 TA eligibility as follows:
a. Enlisted Soldiers who have graduated Advanced Individual Training.
b. Warrant officers who have graduated Warrant Officer Basic Course.
c. Officers who have graduated Basic Officer Leaders Course.

Tier 2: Soldiers who previously used TA for any portion (even one credit) of their undergraduate degree, have attained a bachelor's degree, and wish to pursue an undergraduate or graduate certificate/diploma or master's degree.

If TA was used for any portion of the undergraduate degree, Soldiers establish tier 2 TA eligibility for pursuit of a master's degree as follows:
a. Enlisted Soldiers who have successfully completed Advanced Leaders Course.
b. Warrant officers who have graduated Warrant Officer Advanced Course.
c. Officers who have graduated Captain Career Course or equivalent.

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).
