The hierarchy of academic levels is defined as high school equivalency, Vocational Technical Diploma, Vocational Technical Certificate, Associates, Baccalaureate, Masters, First Professional, and Doctorate.
Tuition Assistance is authorized for off-duty studies offered by institutions whose accrediting bodies are recognized by the Department of Education (DoEd) and listed in the American Council on Education (ACE) AIPE Manual. TA is not authorized for noncredit courses, training programs, certification classes or exams, developmental courses, and continuing education units for Marines.
