All Institutions Participating in the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance Program Must Sign Another New Form; Deadline Extended To September 5

July 09, 2014

The Department of Defense has informed institutions in the Tuition Assistance (TA) program of an update to the previous Memorandum of Understanding issued in May 2014.  Institutions wishing to participate in the TA program after September 5, 2014, must sign a certification statement—even if they have already signed the revised Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) published in May of this year.

The further revised document contains only one minor change: namely, the addition of a paragraph header in an appendix. 

If your institution:

  • Signed the May 2014 version of the MOU, you must now submit the signed certification statement acknowledging being notified of the change in order to continue participation in the TA program after September 5.
  • Has not yet signed the May 2014 version of the MOU, you will need to sign the July 2014 version, known as Change 3, in order to participate.

Additional information about the change may be found in the frequently-asked-questions section on the Department of Defense website.  Questions 31 through 34 specifically address the certification requirement.
