Military Tuition Assistance Program (TA)
Maine College of Health Profession is an approved college to offer courses and degrees eligible for tuition assistance by the Department of Defense. All four service branches and the U.S. Coast Guard offer financial assistance for voluntary, off-duty education programs in support of its service members. Each military branch has its own TA application form and process. To find out how to get started, visit your local installation education center.
Once eligible, students will submit to the Bursar the approval letter identifying the level of benefits.
Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, they may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded. To comply with the U.S. Department of Defense policy, MCHP will return to the government any unearned TA funds on a prorated basis through the 60% portion of the enrolled course for which the funds had been provided. For MCHP’s policy regarding the return of unearned DoD Tuition Assistance funds see:Return of Unearned Military Assistance Funds..
