Marine Tuition Assistance (TA) is available for all active duty and active reserve Marines. Each member receives $4500.00 per fiscal year (1 Oct-30 Sep). There is a cap of $250 per semester hour, $166.67 per quarter hour, and $16.67 per clock hour. BOOKS ARE NOT COVERED. Fees directly required for course enrollment may be combined with tuition. The Marine Corps will only pay fees that are published, mandatory, charged for course enrollment, and reimbursable in the event the student needs to withdraw from the course.
Tuition assistance is available to Reservists on continuous active duty and their course must end prior to demobilization/deactivation. TA is offered to Officers but must agree to remain on active duty for two years. If an Officer voluntarily resigns before the two year obligation is served, they will repay the government a prorated amount of TA.
