Return of Military Tuition Assistance

Military Tuition Assistance Definition:

Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is a benefit paid to eligible members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Congress has given each service the ability to pay up to 100% for the tuition expenses of its member. Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service application processes, and restrictions. This money is usually paid directly to the institution by the individual services. This policy only applies to this type of educational benefit. The TA program is a benefit that is available only while the student is in the service. This policy does not apply to Veterans or Veterans benefits.

TA Policy:

If you are using tuition assistance (TA) to pay for your education and drop or withdraw from a course prior to completing 60% of the course, the Department of Defense requires that Newman University return any unearned TA funds to the department based on how much of the course you completed and that you pay a portion of those returned funds. You may owe a portion of your tuition to Newman University and a portion to your military branch.

100% of the TA will have been earned by the institution should the student’s last date of attendance pass the 60% completion mark. Calculation of these dates includes weekends during the course period, but not scheduled breaks of five consecutive days or more (Fall Break, Spring Break, etc…). A student’s official withdrawal date is determined when a student request to be dropped from a course or no longer meets the attendance requirements to remain eligible to TA funding.

Before dropping or withdrawing from a course, please contact your military education counselor or education services officer to determine how it could impact your military tuition assistance and potential repayment obligations.

The schedule for returned unearned TA is as follows:

8-week Course Withdraw:

Before or during week 1 - 100% return

During week 2 - 75% return

During weeks 3-4 - 50% return

During week 5 - 40% return (60% of course is completed)

During weeks 6-8 - 0% return

16-week Course Withdraw:

Before or during weeks 1-2 - 100% return

During weeks 3-4 - 75% return

During weeks 5-8 - 50% return

During weeks 9-10 - 40% return (60% of course is completed)

During weeks 11-16 - 0% return

For courses that have durations differing from those listed above, the following formula will be used:
The Percentage of TA Earned equals the Days Completed Before Drop, Withdrawal, or Last Participation divided by the Total Number of Days in the Course.

Please note: If you officially or unofficially withdraw from a course and did not complete at least 60 percent of the course, you may not be eligible for the total amount initially awarded through Tuition Assistance. In cases where some or all of the Tuition Assistance must be returned to the military, you will be responsible for all balances on your Newman University student account.
