Active Duty Military


The Military Tuition Assistance (TA) program is available to active-duty, National Guard, and Reserve Component servicemembers.


The Top-Up program allows funds from the Montgomery GI Bill® — Active Duty or Post-9/11 GI Bill — to be used for tuition and fees for high-cost courses that are not fully covered by TA funds.
