TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. These funds are returned to the military Service branch. The student will be responsible for any balance resulting from the return of tuition assistance to the sponsor. Instances when a Service Member stops attending due to a military service obligation, the educational institution will work with the affected Service Member to identify solutions that will not result in student debt for the returned portion.
The Bursar’s Office is responsible for the reassessment of student account charges; however, it is the responsibility of the Financial Aid Office to ensure financial aid awards have been evaluated and reassessed accordingly.
