Military Tuition Assistance
Military TA (tuition assistance) is a distinct source of financial aid for eligible service members and mandated to be the first payer of their college tuition.
For general information on military TA, you can contact the JHU Veteran and Military Affairs Team via SEAM’s online form. If utilizing military TA, please follow the third party payer guidelines when submitting your approved TA form to JHU.
Military tuition assistance may only be used to pursue degree programs at colleges and universities in the United States that are regionally or nationally accredited by an accrediting body recognized by the U.S Department of Education. Since each military branch has its own tuition assistance application procedure, we recommend you visit your local installation education center for guidance.
JHU refrains from high-pressure recruitment tactics such as making multiple unsolicited contacts (3 or more), including contacts by phone, email, or in person; and engaging in same-day recruitment and registration for the purpose of securing Service member enrollments.
Prior to your course enrollment, you may be required to provide an education degree plan or complete a tuition assistance orientation. The tuition assistance recipient should request their degree plan from their academic advisor. Your service’s education center must approve your military tuition assistance before you enroll in a course.

- Leaving the service before the course ends
- Quitting the course for reasons other than personal illness, military transfer, or mission requirements
- Failing the course
Tuition Refund Policy When Dropping or Withdrawing from a Course
