Education Benefits for Army Soldiers

Making sense of the long list of Army education benefits is difficult and confusing at best. From tuition assistance programs to the GI Bill, scholarships to loans--there is a dizzying array of choices for members of the Army. Here is a step-by-step guide to Army education benefits for active members.

Army Tuition Assistance & "Top Up" program

The Army's Tuition Assistance and "Top Up" programs remain two of the most popular education benefits for servicemembers.

  • Army Tuition Assistance (TA). For soldiers pursuing their educations on their off-duty time, the TA pays 100 percent of tuition and fees, up to $250 per semester credit hour with a $4,500 yearly cap.
  • Tuition Assistance "Top-Up." Top-Up allows you to use some of your GI Bill education benefits to pay for tuition costs over the $250 per credit limit that TA pays. The VA pays the Army for the additional portion.
