Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit from your individual branch of service (i.e. Army) to UVM which may be available to pay a portion of your tuition if you are eligible. TA pays a set amount per credit hour, on a course by course basis. It requires you to work with your Education Officer to submit the appropriate documentation such as a detailed schedule and a degree plan.
Note: While you might be able to use TA with portions of the GI Bill, remember, any overpayments must be returned to your branch of service, or VA, respectively.
TA is not a VA benefit but is earned by your service. If you are think you may be eligible, contact your unit Education Officer or check out the link below:
- Military.com has a great page about how to apply for and use TA.
