Tuition Assistance back in mid-April

Mar. 30, 2013 - 11:55AM   |  

The Air Force plans to reinstate its tuition assistance program toward mid-April, said Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force James Cody.

The program will continue to cover 100 percent of education costs and there won't be any restrictions on what courses airmen can take for the rest of fiscal 2013, Cody told Air Force Times on March 28.

The Air Force needs to divert between $75 and $90 million from elsewhere in the budget to pay for tuition assistance through the end of the fiscal year, he said. The service has not yet determined from where that money will come.

The Air Force hopes to fund the program for the six months remaining in the fiscal year, but there is always the chance that funding will run out before then, Cody said.

Between now and October, the Air Force will examine which airmen are eligible for tuition assistance and when they can use the program, he said.
