Tuition information for Military Students
Each of the Armed Services establishes
tuition assistance rates. A Tuition Assistance (TA) document from the
appropriate service may be submitted for payment of 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 not covered. TCC processes the TA document
to pay for the covered amount.
Active duty military
personnel (Virginia Residence) are eligible for in-state tuition and for
active duty military personnel (Non-Virginia Residence) are eligible for military contract rates under the provision of tuition assistance. 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. For additional assistance or information on
Tuition Assistance, contact your Educational Services Officer, Navy College
Office, or TCC Base Representative.
|To learn more and understand the Military Tuition Assistance
Program, then read and understand all the provisions and
instructions before completing the Tuition Assistance
member must attend an informational brief explaining the tuition assistance
program. Contact Navy College offices at other local bases to find out the
schedule for these briefs. The service member must complete a tuition assistance
registration worksheet indicating the classes in which they plan to enroll.

officers, a letter from their superior indicating authorization to attend school
for the inclusive dates of the term (refer to the samples that have been

Tuition assistance is
an educational benefit that pays 100% of the in-state tuition or military contract rate and other required
fees as applicable. The active duty member must successfully complete the
course, earn a passing grade and maintain an educational file with their Navy
College office or appropriate educational service office. Withdrawal, a grade of
"F" or a "R/U" (repeat or unsatisfactory) in a developmental course will result
in a financial obligation to the appropriate service. The service member must
maintain a 2.0 grade point average to retain eligibility for tuition
Credit cards (Visa and Mastercard
only) are accepted for payment of your tuition. Cash will NOT be
accepted at the on base offices. Students should refer to their student semester
schedule booklet for tuition payment deadlines. Failure to pay by the deadline
will result in you being deleted from the course and there is no guarantee you
can be reinstated in that course if it becomes filled. Payment can be made to
the TCC or 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. It is also the document that gets you coded as a military contract
student entitled to the contract rate. TA applications for Navy students must be
completed (see above).
