Return of Military Tuition Assistance (TA)

If you are using TA to pay for your education and withdraw from a class prior to completing 60 percent of the class, the Department of Defense (DoD) requires that UIW return any unearned TA funds to the DoD based on how much of the course you completed and that you pay a portion of those returned funds. You may owe a portion of your tuition to UIW and a portion to your military branch. 

If you officially withdraw from the course, the amount of unearned TA funds is calculated from the date you withdrew. If you receive a grade of F (failure for nonattendance), you unofficially withdrew and the amount of unearned TA funds is calculated from the date of your last participation in the course. Your TA eligibility is determined based on the following formula:

Days Completed Before Withdrawal/Last Participation
Total Number of Days of the Course                                              = Percent of TA Earned

If you withdrew due to a military service obligation, submit a request for exception with supporting documentation and we will work with you to ensure you are not responsible for the UIW portion of the returned funds.
