Supporting Soldier's Educational Goals

The Tuition Assistance Program (TA) provides financial assistance for voluntary off-duty education programs in support of a Soldier's educational goals.

Procedure:

  1. Soldiersā€™ TA enrollment requests must be submitted and approved through ArmyIgnitED.com prior to the course start date; any enrollments requested on or after the class start date will be approved as Soldier funded.
  2. Eligible Service members must receive approval from an Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within the Military Service prior to enrolling.
  3. TA will be requested on a course-by-course basis and each course must be part of an approved program of study.
  4. ArmyIgnitED will notify the Soldier, whether the TA is approved or not. If the TA request is not approved, ArmyIgnitED will advise the Soldier of the reason and next steps.
  5. All drops/withdrawals must take place through ArmyIgnitED. Soldiers who do not successfully complete a class will be required to repay the TA. Soldiers who are unable to successfully complete a class due to military reasons must request a Withdrawal for Military Reasons through ArmyIgnitED and complete all required steps to ensure that they will not be charged.
  6. If the Soldier wishes to take a class with a school that does not participate in the electronic ArmyIgnitED class schedule, a TA Request Authorization form must be completed in ArmyIgnitED. The TA Request Authorization will be routed to an Army Education Counselor to be reviewed and approved. Soldiers should allow extra time for this. If the TA Request Authorization is approved, the Soldier will be notified by email. Soldiers must print the approved TA Request Authorization form in ArmyIgnitED, provide it to the school and enroll directly with the school.
  7. Soldiers must acknowledge and electronically sign the TA Statement of Understanding (TA SOU) each quarter they wish to use TA.
  8. Please visit your respective Military Services education portal for additional information. ArmyIgnitED.com
  9. MCC requires the soldier to notify us of intent to use TA funding. Please visit the Veteran Services Office or email veteran.services@mcc.edu
  10. Soldiers who withdraw from their classes due to a military service obligation will have their student accounts adjusted. TA funds will be returned to ArmyIgnitED. Soldier must notify the Veterans Services Office if they withdraw from a class.
  11. The student that needs to withdraw from their classes due to a military service obligation will be approved through the Tuition Appeal process for any debt incurred.
