Tuition Assistance (TA) is the Navy's educational financial assistance program. It provides active duty personnel funding for tuition costs for courses taken in an off-duty status at a regionally, nationally or professionally accredited college, university, or vocational/technical institution recognized by the Department of Education. Navy TA pays for both classroom and independent study/distance learning courses, regardless of course length.
Navy Tuition Assistance pays up-front the tuition and fees charged by educational institutions for course enrollment. It is no longer necessary for Navy students to pay tuition and show successful completion before they are reimbursed. Navy TA pays 100% of tuition cost for courses applicable to the completion of a high school diploma or equivalency certificate. For other education levels, there is a fiscal year limit if 16 semester hours, 24 quarter hours.
Payment for tuition will not exceed the following caps, TA no longer covers fees:
