Recent Department of Defense Changes to the Tuition Assistance Program
The Department of Defense (DoD) announced that they will no longer authorize Tuition Assistance for classes for which a member is also receiving benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill – Selected Reserve program (chapter 1606 of title 10, United States Code), Reserve Educational Assistance Program (chapter 1607 of title 10, United States Code), or any other GI Bill program other than the Montgomery GI Bill – Active Duty program (chapter 30 of title 38, United States Code) or the Post-9/11 GI Bill program (chapter 33 of title 38, United States Code). Students must choose to receive either 1606/1607 or Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA).
This will be in effect starting Spring 2015 until further notice is given by the DoD.
