Federal tuition assistance suspended
But Iowa National Guard members will continue to receive education benefits
Due to the current fiscal challenges, the Army and Air Force have announced the suspension of the federal Tuition Assistance program, effective immediately. The announcement affects all Army and Air Force branches, including Iowa Army and Air National Guard soldiers and airmen.
While soldiers and airmen are not permitted to submit new requests for tuition assistance, those currently enrolled in courses approved for tuition assistance are allowed to complete their current enrollment and will receive federal Tuition Assistance benefits for that course.
Army and Air Force officials said this suspension is necessary, given the significant military spending cutbacks caused by the combined effects of a possible year-long continuing resolution and sequestration. Both services will re-evaluate their TA policy should the budgetary situation improve.
