We offer a broad range of assistance designed to provide the best opportunity for career employment upon graduation. We help research and match labor market indicators that best correspond with learned academic skills, work experience, and personal attributes; resume writing; and developing interview techniques. This resource may be especially lucrative for Veterans seeking to translate military job experience to the civilian workforce.
Tuition Assistance (TA) is a military benefit for students who are still currently serving. This program is designed to support a service member’s personal and professional goals. Each branch of the service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process, and restrictions.
To be eligible for TA, an enlisted service member must have enough time remaining in service to complete the course for which he or she has applied. After the completion of a course, an officer using TA must fulfill a service obligation that runs parallel with – not in addition to – any existing service obligation.
Please reach out to your branch-specific Education Service Officer or Career Counselor at your unit or base to determine your eligibility and what steps you need to take if you wish to seek out this benefit. Additionally, once you have determined your eligibility and reached out to your Education Service Officer, please feel free to reach out to Liz Carson-Murphy ([email protected]), the University Director of Veteran and Military Student Affairs, or your campus SCO.
Antioch University is approved to accept Tuition Assistance payments from all DOD branches of service.
The Tuition Assistance Program is awarded with the following limits:
- Not to exceed $250 per semester credit hour or $166 per quarter credit hour
- Not to exceed $4,500 per fiscal year, Oct. 1 through Sept. 30
Students using TA will only be enrolled in courses after it is approved by the Education Service Officer or Career Counselor.
Where to Start:
- Seek approval from Branch/Unit/Base Education Service Office (ESO) or counselor within Military Services prior to enrolling to determine eligibility and information about branch-specific process to seek Tuition Assistance.
- Complete appropriate application per military branch/education office instructions.
- When your TA is approved, please communicate with Antioch University’s Student Accounts Office or campus School Certifying Official to complete the process.
- If you are eligible for Tuition Assistance Top Up, please contact one of the campus School Certifying Officials for assistance.
- All TA requests MUST be completed and submitted at least 8 business days prior to the start of the term.
- Students receiving TA are still eligible to apply for and receive Title IV funds through federal financial aid. Students can inquire about federal and state financial aid by emailing the Antioch University Financial Aid Office and requesting a financial aid counseling session.
