Military Tuition Assistance

Military Tuition Assistance (TA) Students

TA programs are administered at Macomb by the offices of Sponsored Billing and Veteran & Military Services. The funds must be pre-approved by your branch and the plans vary, allowing up to $250 per credit hour and up to $4,500 per fiscal year. No fees, books or supplies are covered. If you receive other financial assistance to pay for college, it may reduce the amount of your TA award. Refer to your branch TA plan for further information.

Important Steps

  1. Declare a degree program.
  2. Obtain a signed, official Program Plan when you meet with your counselor or advisor and submit it to your TA plan for approval.
  3. Apply for TA through your branch's website and thoroughly review terms and conditions.
  4. Submit approved TA voucher via e-mail to and pay non-approved costs by payment due date. If your voucher is not available, you must submit full payment and be reimbursed.
    • If you are having issues with your voucher or approvals, be sure to drop courses within the 100% refund period to avoid financial responsibility.
  5. Obtain a copy of your grade report or transcript to submit to TA plan as necessary.

Note: Students who must withdraw from a class after the 100% refund period as a result of military deployment shall receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees or equivalent credit voucher upon documentation satisfactory to the college.
