Military Tuition Assistance is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Congress has given each service the ability to pay up to 100% for the tuition expenses of its members. Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process’ and restrictions. This money is usually paid directly to the institution by the individual services.

  1. Apply for Tuition Assistance through your Education Office on-base.

  4. Submit your Tuition Assistance Voucher to the Cashier’s Office at or inside Building 3. Pay for tuition if not using Tuition Assistance and other financial aid.
  5. If you have a remaining balance, you can make payments online on your Self Service account or inside the Cashier’s Office inside Building 3. They accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, or American Express.
