Tuition Assistance

The Department of Defense (DoD) Tuition Assistance (TA) program provides financial assistance to Service members for voluntary off-duty education programs in support of professional and personal self-development goals. TA is available for courses that are offered in the classroom or by distance learning and are part of an approved academic degree or certificate program. The courses must be offered by schools that are recognized by the U.S Department of Education and are signatories to the current DoD voluntary Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (DOD MOU). The University of Utah is a signatory. Service-specific TA policies and procedures can be found at For additional information, service members should contact their command's education office.
