Navy College Office Assistance

Tuition Assistance

  • TAs that are not command approved and that are 15 days past class start date will be automatically denied in the system
  • An email is sent to the service member and the command approver every 5 days until the command either approves or denies the request

Tuition Assistance is currently limited to 16 semester hours up to $250.00 per credit or 24 quarter hours @ $166.67 per credit; not to exceed the $4,500 TA per fiscal year. The Navy no longer funds continuing education units (CEU) courses or clock hours.

Please check and see if NETPDTC is accepting TA credit waivers at the Navy College Program website. TA waiver credit requests cannot exceed $4500.

All courses must be from an institution accredited by the US Department of Education.

Lateral or same level degrees are not funded unless all the criteria are met in NAVADMIN 166/07. Funding must take place in accordance with the Navy's Tuition Assistance policy.

Tuition Assistance is never funded after the fact but upfront before the class or term starts.
