Using Navy Tuition Assistance

The Navy Tuition Assistance Authorization document may be submitted for payment of Tuition and the Technology Fee for enrollment at TCC. The student is responsible for paying the portion of the tuition not covered by the TA, and submission of the TA document signifies that the student accepts liability for payment of the tuition and fees not covered. TCC uses the TA document to invoice the Navy for the covered amount.

 

BEFORE SUBMITTING your Tuition Assistance Authorization to TCC, please write your TCC Student Identification System (SIS) number in the upper left hand corner of the TA authorization, under the NETPDTC 1560/3 Rev. (09/07) form number and above your SSN. Writing your TCC SIS number on your TA authorization will expedite the registration, enrollment and payment process.

 

Submitting the TA document makes the non-Virginia domiciled military student eligible for military contract rates for the entire registration for the semester. If a military student does not submit a TA document for the specific semester, the student must pay the entire bill at the applicable out-of-state rate, UNLESS appropriate paperwork is provided to the TCC Domicile Office in order to establish eligibility for the Virginia Contract Rate. For additional assistance or information on Tuition Assistance, contact your Educational Services Officer, Navy College Office, or TCC Base Representative.  You may also contact a TCC CMVE Advisor at the numbers listed below.

Eligibility for Navy Tuition Assistance requires:

  • Completion of the Navy's TA Online Training for Active Duty, located under Navy College Programs on the Navy College website. Review the slide presentation, fill-in the Certificate of Completion, and submit the certificate to your Navy College Office or the Navy's Virtual Education Center (VEC);
  • A Degree Plan must be submitted and on file with your local Navy College Office and the Navy's Virtual Education Center (VEC) for uploading to the Navy's TA database (NCMIS).  The Degree Plan may be the Rating Roadmap from this website, an unofficial evaluation by a TCC or Navy College Advisor, or your official TCC SOC Evaluation.  Email or phone a TCC Military Programs Advisor with any questions.

 

To learn more about Navy Tuition Assistance, click here before completing the Navy WebTA Application or paper Tuition Assistance Application Form.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

If you make ANY CHANGES once you have requested Navy TA and submitted it to TCC for payment, you should immediately notify the TCC Business and Enrollment Services offices or your TCC advisor, as well as your Navy College Office or the Virtual Education Center (VEC) so that your TA Authorization can be updated.

Your Tuition Assistance Document must exactly match your TCC enrollment.


To remain eligible for Tuition Assistance, Members must successfully complete the course(s) in which enrolled, earn a passing grade, and maintain an  education file with their Navy College office or the VEC. Withdrawal or a grade of "F" for college-level courses, or a "R/U" (repeat or unsatisfactory) in a developmental course will result in a financial obligation to the Navy. The service member must maintain an overall 2.0 grade point average to retain eligibility for tuition assistance. 

Tuition and Fees Payment:

     Credit cards (Visa and Mastercard only) are accepted for payment of your tuition and/or fees. Cash will NOT be accepted at the on-base offices. Students should refer to the main TCC tuition site for the schedule of tuition deadlines. Failure to pay by the deadline will result in being deleted from the course, with no guarantee of reinstatement in that course if it becomes filled.

     If local, payment can be made to the TCC on-base representative at the base locations or to the campus business offices. Remember that the original TA paperwork represents a significant portion of the payment and must accompany your check, money order or credit card payment.

Returned Checks/ Credit Card Chargebacks:

When a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card charge back is returned to the college prior to the last day for a tuition refund, the student will automatically be removed from all affected classes.  A $35.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment for accounts not in past due collection status.   A period of ten (10) days will be allowed to satisfy the financial obligation prior to initiating the collection process.  A $50.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment when the student's account is in past due collection status.  Notice of these actions will be sent by U.S. Mail to the student.

To be eligible to attend classes, the student must register again prior to the last day to add or change classes as noted in the TCC Catalog  by presentation of a certified check, money order, MasterCard or Visa, or cash.

In addition, a “Prevent Check Presentation” service indicator will be placed on the student account for a minimum of two years.  If the returned check fee and total obligation is not paid in full by the required time the college will seek payment though the State of Virginia Department of Treasury and Collection agencies.

 

Policy on Delinquent Accounts:

Students who incur a debt (delinquent account) with the college must satisfy that debt to remain in good standing with the college.  The college will follow procedures provided by the State CAPP Manual, the Virginia Community College System’s Policy Manual, and the TCC Financial Services Policy and Procedure Manual in pursuit of all delinquent accounts.

  

When a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card charge back is returned to the college after the last day for tuition refund, a $35.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment for accounts not in past due collection status.   A period of ten (10) days will be allowed to satisfy the financial obligation prior to initiating the collection process.  A $50.00 service charge will be assessed against the student's account for a returned check or dishonored credit card or debit card payment when the student's account is in past due collection status.  Notice of these actions will be sent by U.S. Mail to the student.

 

At 30 days past due, all delinquent accounts will be assessed a collection fee equal to 30% of the original debt. External resources include the Virginia Department of Taxation Set-off Debt system and Private Collection Agencies.

Students who maintain a debt to the college will not be permitted to register or to attend classes, and the college will not issue transcripts, certificates, or degrees, until all debts are paid in full to the college.
