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.
