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.
|8-Week Course Withdraw submitted|
|Before or during week 1||100% return|
|During week 2-5||30% return (60% of course is completed)|
