  • Tuition Assistance and Financial Aid

    Tuition Assistance (TA)

    Tuition Assistance (TA) is an option if you plan to attend school while on active duty. View the Registration Checklist if you are planning on using TA at ASU.

    For more information regarding TA, please visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website.

    TA Scholarship Information

    ASU offers Tuition Assistance Scholarships to active duty military members who submit a valid and current Tuition Assistance (TA) Form to cover courses at ASU. The scholarship will cover the difference between total TA and other gift aid* benefits and the actual cost of tuition and fees.

    Contact the VETS Center for more information.

    *Gift aid includes grants and scholarships other than the Tuition Assistance Scholarship. All gift aid shall be used to reduce the cost of tuition and fees for approved courses after TA funds have been applied. If a balance is due after the application of TA funds and all other gift aid, we will cover the remaining balance with Tuition Assistance Scholarship funds to reduce the balance to zero. If a student has sufficient gift aid to cover all amounts due after the application of TA, Tuition Assistance Scholarship funds will not be applied.

    Financial Aid

    We encourage all students to apply for financial aid. Even though you receive Tuition Assistance or other military benefits, you may also qualify for financial aid.
