Active Duty, Reserve and National Guard

  • Tuition Assistance

    Argosy University has signed the Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of Defense, which allows you to use Military Tuition Assistance (TA). The program is available to active duty, National Guard and Reserve Component service members. TA currently pays tuition and course-specific fees up to $250 per semester hour for eligible students. Your service branch pays your tuition directly to the school. Prior to enrolling into an institution, service members need to first check with an education counselor or Educational Services Officer (ESO), for the specifics involving TA by visiting their local installation education office, contacting your education counselor or ESO, or by going online to a virtual education center.

    Each military branch has its own TA application form and procedures, and each determines the eligibility requirements and the amount of assistance available. The service member must apply for the program and receive approval before starting classes. Prior to your course enrollment, you may be required to develop an education plan or complete TA orientation.

    To find out how to get started, contact your ESO, visit your local installation education center, go online to a virtual education center or click on the following links for each service branch:
