Federal Tuition Assistance

The Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA) program provides financial assistance to students currently serving in the National Guard, reserves, or on Active Duty. FTA can be used for voluntary education programs that support professional and personal self-development goals. FTA is available for courses that are offered in the classroom or by distance learning and is part of an approved academic degree or certificate program.

Review this article from Military OneSource for useful information on how to use the FTA.

Prior to your course enrollment, you may be required to develop an education plan or complete FTA orientation. Your service's education center must approve your military tuition assistance before you enroll in a course.
