DoD Approval Required Prior to Enrollment
Per Department of Defense (DoD) Memorandum of Understanding (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.”
