University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus follows all requirements of the Department of Defense Voluntary Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding. Each individual military service branch manages military Tuition Assistance (TA) guidelines. Students wishing to use military TA should contact their military service first to determine both eligibility and availability of military TA funds.
**Once approved by your military service, please complete the sponsor student agreement form.**
Per DoD MOU, paragraph 4.d.(1), “If an eligible Service member decides to use Tuition Assistance (TA), educational institutions will enroll him or her only after the TA is approved by the individual’s Service.” Service members can register for classes prior to securing military TA however they will be solely responsible for all tuition costs until their military services approves their request and the appropriate documents are submitted to the university. The service member’s evaluated education plan approved for military TA will only cover courses listed under the plan.
Use of military TA with Financial Aid and VA Education Benefits:
military TA is eligible to use concurrently with financial aid and VA education benefits if eligible. Per DOD rules, military TA is not eligible to use with the Montgomery GI Bill®-Selected Reserve Program (CH1606) or the Reserve Educational Assistance Program (CH1607). Students must submit their FAFSA to determine eligible financial aid and discuss eligibility for VA education benefits with VMSS. Students who qualify for Pell Grants and/or VA education benefits will have their military TA benefits applied to their account prior to the application of their Pell Grant funds and their VA education benefits. Contact the Veterans & Military Student Services (VMSS) via email email@example.com for assistance.
