DoD Tuition Assistance & MyCAA Funded Students

Please see our main page for information on our DoD funded tuition rates.  Students in courses with special program tuition should contact our representatives for assistance with special course tuition rates. 

Students should always consult their service education office before engaging in any voluntary education endeavor.  It's the students' responsibility to know the Tuition Assistance (TA) process and policy for their branch of service and to ensure tuition balances are paid by the payment deadline.  Contact your Education Office or our Alamo Colleges Installation Representatives if you have questions.

Paying with Tuition Assistance (TA)

Registration periods have corresponding payment deadlines.  TA must be submitted to the college (once approved and signed) for processing by the payment deadline associated with the date of registration.  TA funding documents are not processed on the weekends (or holidays) unless the campus Business Office is scheduled to be open for business, in which case you may submit your TA in person for processing.  Students who fail to turn in their approved TA forms and pay outstanding balances will be dropped for non-payment.  

  1. Register for courses 
  2. Request TA
  3. Know your payment deadline
  4. Request payment extension if necessary
  5. Submit approved TA to college for processing before payment deadline
  6. Pay all other balance not covered by TA through your ACES account

Payment Deadline Calendar 

During the months of June and July, the colleges operate on a 4 day work-week, closed Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  TA and MyCAA documents must be turned in no later than 1500 on the Thursday before payment deadlines in order to be processed.  Students may opt at any time to enroll themselves in a payment plan online through their student account to secure their courses.

Payment Extension Request for Pending TA

If your payment deadline is prior to funding approval, you may request a payment extension. A payment extension may be granted for those eligible for Tuition Assistance (TA) or MyCAA funding.  Please refer to our Payment Extension Request form.
