Military Tuition Assistance

OSUIT participates in Department of Defense Tuition Assistance (TA) programs. We serve as a liaison to the Department of Defense in processing TA and other military educational benefits.

Tuition Assistance programs may be offered through the various branches of the military. TA funds are a unique and distinct source of financial aid available only to eligible Service Members and is a first payer. For more information on these programs, students should contact the Education Service Officer (ESO) of their unit. Eligible service members should receive approval from an ESO or counselor within the military service prior to enrolling.

Submit the Tuition Assistance Authorization/Voucher to The Office of Military and Veteran Services located at the Grady Clack Center. The office of the Bursar will process your benefits after the Add/Drop period has passed.

Veteran students utilizing VA benefits are required to submit any and all prior credit not limited to but including military credit.
