Tuition Assistance Back For Marines, Accepting New Enrollments

By Cpl. Tyler L. Main | Headquarters Marine Corps | April 12, 2013
 
WASHINGTON --
As of April 8, 2013, the Voluntary Education Tuition Assistance funding is restored within the Marine Corps and new enrollments may begin immediately according to officials from the Marine and Family Programs Division.
 
Tuition Assistance has full funding for the 2013 fiscal year and follows the same guidelines as the previous program.
 
This means Tuition Assistance funding will be preserved at the current maximum rate per individual of no more than $250 per semester hour and $4,500 annually.
For example (fictitious scenario):
 
Cpl. Jones decides he wants to take History 101 at University of X. He seeks academic advisement from his/her education service officer or advisors and completes a TA request through https://myeducation.netc.navy.mil.
 
Tuition Assistance will remain until the end of the fiscal year as Congress appropriates money in one-year increments. Funding for subsequent years will be subject to further Congressional appropriation.
 
As before, all first-time students must complete the Tuition Assistance orientation class “College 101.”
 
Marines with questions should contact their Education Service Officer, who can provide individualized academic advisement and inform Marines about the full breadth of tuition funding sources and how they can take advantage of their degree plans.
