DOD May Raise Cap on Tuition Aid for Deployed

The Defense Department may ease tuition assistance rules for deployed service members to make it easier for them to take classes, a DoD official said Tuesday.

“They have extra time on their hands, in some cases, and they want to do more,” said Dawn Bilodeau, chief of DoD Voluntary Education.

The DoD tuition assistance program, commonly called TA, sets caps on how many courses students can take at a time — and how much in tuition costs it will pay.
