Changes Coming to TA

5 Things you need to know about FY-15 Tuition Assistance Policy

1. Effective immediately, command officers and officers-in-charge may approve waivers to the one-year requirement that Sailors must be on board their first permanent duty station to be eligible for Tuition Assistance.

2. Beginning Oct. 1, only tuition directly related to the course of instruction - and not including fees - will be paid with TA funds. Fees no longer covered by TA include equipment, supplies, books/materials, exams, admissions, registration, fines and costs associated with distance learning.

3. The minimum-required grade level has changed. Sailors not successfully completing courses with a "C" or higher for undergraduate and a "B" or higher for graduate courses must reimburse the Navy for TA funds.

4. This policy is effective for all courses with start dates after Oct. 1, 2014.
