Each branch of the military has its own application process, forms, and Tuition Assistance (TA) benefits. Please consult your Education Services Officer (ESO) and visit Military.com for details and to start the application process.
Each branch of the military handles TA somewhat differently. If you are in the Army, you will use GoArmyEd to register for classes and have Tuition Assistance applied. If you're in the Air Force, you'll need to register through U.Va. and then apply for TA through the Air Force Virtual Education Center.
If you are in the Coast Guard, Navy, or Marine Corps, you will go to your respective Education Center in person, complete their form, have it signed by your education coordinator, and send it to our office using the contact information in the footer at the bottom of this web page.
Please note: Your TA benefits will impact certain financial aid eligibility. TA benefits will be included as a financial resource in your financial aid award package and may reduce state grants, University grants, federal loans and work study, and private loans. Each financial aid award type is different, so the benefit may affect each person’s award differently. Please contact Student Financial Services for questions about how your TA benefits may impact your financial aid at [email protected] or 434.982.6000.
