Troops to Teachers

The skills, knowledge, and experience one gains in the military are highly valued in our public schools.

The Tuition Assistance Program is available to active duty, National Guard and Reserve Component service members. TA will pay $250 per credit hour. Your service branch pays your tuition directly to the school.
