Military Tuition Assistance Forms

All military students who are using Military Tuition Assistance (MTA) program must apply for tuition assistance through their specific branch of the service prior to the first day of the class. If you have not applied for MTA prior to the first day of class you may be denied Military Tuition Assistance by your military branch. If you do not have your Tuition Assistance form submitted to the College of Liberal Studies by the last day of add/drop for each term you may be held liable for all tuition and fees. Please note:

  • Each branch of the military has different systems for applying for MTA so please check with your Education Office prior to the start of the term to ensure you have complied with their requirements.
  • You must be enrolled in a College of Liberal Studies course through Ozone before you apply for MTA.
