New tuition assistance (TA) changes have been made that may affect Air Force members. Beginning with courses starting on or after Jan. 5, members who must pay back any money to tuition assistance due to a failing grade must do so in a lump sum. Students will no longer have the option of monthly payroll deduction. Also, any TA requests that are not authorized by the student's supervisor will be auto-disapproved at midnight of the term start date. It is important that students stay involved with their supervisor to ensure requests are reviewed prior to term start date to avoid being auto-disapproved. For more information, contact your base education office.
