Online PR News – 19-November-2010 – – Salt Lake City, Utah, Nov 18, 2010 – Stevens-Henager College has announced its participation in the Military Tuition Assistance Program in a bid to make higher education more accessible to members of the Armed Forces.
The Military Tuition Assistance Program is a benefit offered by the Armed Forces to further and support the educational goals of military service members. As part of this program, Congress has given the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard the mandate to pay up to 100% of the tuition expenses of its eligible service members.
The eligibility criteria and application process is different for each Service, and the money is usually paid directly to the educational institution chosen by a service member.
In order to use this benefit, eligible service members need to select an academic program at any of the Stevens-Henager’s campuses and get it approved by their base education officer. A military education specialist at their campus will then help them through the entire process of accessing the Tuition Assistance benefit.
Members should note that Tuition Assistance is not a loan extended to them. It is a benefit that they have earned and will enjoy in return for providing services to the country. Just as active duty members benefit from the Military Tuition Assistance Program, veterans interested in pursuing higher education enjoy VA Education Benefits. So, if you are a military veteran or an active duty member looking for an education, Stevens-Henager College will help you realize your goals.
