Who is eligible?
TA is available to both Naval Officer and Enlisted active duty personnel and Naval Reservists on continuous active duty. It is also available to enlisted Naval Reservists ordered to active duty 120 days and to Naval Reservist Officers ordered to active duty for 2 years or more. To qualify, service members must:
•· Be on active duty for the whole length of the course.
•· Attend an institution accredited by a regional, national, or professional accrediting agency recognized by the Department of Education.
•· Receive counseling from a Navy College Office.
•· (Optional) determine if a CLEP/DSST exam could take the place of the course to be funded (either ask your school or your Navy College Office). If a CLEP/DSST exam credit could apply, consult with your Navy College Office for instructions on taking the practice test and scheduling an appointment for the test.
•· Provide all grades from previously funded TA courses and reimburse all W and F grades. (Withdrawals for involuntary reasons may be granted with command verification)Agree, if an officer, to remain on active duty for at least two years upon completion of courses funded by TA.
