“The way things are set up, almost any serviceperson should be able to get at least an associate degree while on active duty, because of the Military Tuition Assistance,” says Manfred F. Meine, professor of public administration at Troy University in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is a Department of Defense program for active-duty military soldiers and personnel.
While provisions differ between branches of service, in TA provides benefits in general cover up to $250 per credit hour, with a maximum of $4,500 per year. Using these benefits active duty soldiers can potentially get a free college degree online while serving in the military.
