Tuition Assistance & MyCAA Funded Students
DoD funded students using Tuition Assistance (TA) or Military Spouse Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) funding have a separate tuition rate.  In-state students; $80 per semester hour.  Out of state students; $250 per semester hour.  Students in courses with special program tuition should contact our representatives for assistance with special course tuition rates. 

It's the students' responsibility to know the Tuition Assistance (TA) process 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.
