If you are currently active duty, National Guard or a Reservist, you may be eligible for funding offered through the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance (TA) program. National Guardsmen or Reservists eligible for educational benefits should contact the Office of Financial Aid to obtain necessary school documentation. As a reminder, Service members should first check with the Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within their Military Service regarding eligibility status and the amount for which you qualify prior to enrolling in an institution. Each branch has its own rules and methods of applying for TA, so you will need to contact your unit for application assistance.
If you will be using tuition assistance, you will need to submit an approved TA Authorization to the Office of Financial Aid on or before the payment deadline of each semester. The TA program only pays for tuition, not fees. Please be aware that Manhattan Tech has per credit hour student fees as well as course-specific distance learning fees and course fees. Service members using Tuition Assistance will be responsible for paying any applicable fees.
If your TA administrator requests a signed program plan of study, please contact the Office of Financial Aid to obtain this document. We are also happy to assist with uploading courses/plans to your tuition assistance portal.
