ARMY TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM SUSPENDED
From GoArmyEd (www.goarmyed.com)
Washington, D.C. — The Secretary of the Army has approved the suspension of Tuition Assistance effective March 8, 2013. Soldiers will no longer be permitted to submit new requests for Tuition Assistance. However, Soldiers currently enrolled in courses approved for Tuition Assistance are not affected, and will be allowed to complete current course enrollment(s).
This change in the Army Tuition Assistance program applies to all Soldiers, including the Army National Guard and Army Reserves. The Army understands the impacts of this decision and will re-evaluate the decision if the budgetary situation improves.
In the interim, Soldiers can continue to access their GI Bill benefits, if applicable, either the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) or the Post 9/11 GI Bill, or use other funding sources (i.e. grants, scholarships, or Army National Guard Soldiers using state Tuition Assistance where available).
TAMUCT staff are prepared to discuss various options with students that are affected by these changes. For more information or further assistance, please contact one of the following below:
Soldiers at TAMUCT that HAVE already submitted applications for Tuition Assistance and are unsure if they have been processed may contact Mr. John Carroll at firstname.lastname@example.org or 254-532-9066.
Soldiers at TAMUCT that HAVE NOT submitted applications for Tuition Assistance may contact Student Financial Assistance at email@example.com or 254-501-5854.
