Federal Tuition Assistance

Federal Tuition Assistance

Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA) is available to active duty service-members and drilling members of the National Guard and Reserve components. This program will pay up to $4,000 per fiscal year toward tuition expenses. In some cases, this benefit can be used in conjunction with other veterans education benefits, with tuition assistance benefits applying prior to Pell Grant funds.

This program has a limited budget and is paid on a first come, first serve basis of when applications are received. This benefit is paid directly to the college. Recipients are required to earn a “C” and maintain a 2.0 GPA or better in classes. Failure to complete classes satisfactorily will require repayment of FTA funds by the soldier.
