      MILITARY TUITION ASSISTANCE (TA) REFUND POLICY:
      Military Tuition Assistance is a benefit paid to the school for eligible military student recipients who are active members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The student is awarded the TA benefit with the understanding that the student will attend the entire semester. Monroe College is required to calculate Military Tuition Assistance (TA) earned when a military student using TA withdraws.

      As participants in the Department of Defense (DoD) Voluntary Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), students who officially or unofficially withdraw from a course before completing 61 percent of the semester have not earned 100% of the amount of their voucher for the withdrawn course. Monroe College is required to return the unearned portion of the TA funds to the military service that provided the TA funding.  Unearned TA funds that are returned to the appropriate military branch of service will become a debt to the student.

      Monroe College will calculate the amount of unearned Tuition Assistance funds using the official last date of attendance, as determined by the institution’s attendance records. The last date of attendance is used to determine the number of days completed. Tuition Assistance eligibility is determined based on the following formula:

      Number of days completed
      ______________________ = Percent of TA earned

      Total of days scheduled

      For example, if the semester is 100 days, and a student’s withdrawal date falls on the 43rd day of the semester, the formula used would be 43/100 or 43 percent of TA earned. 57 percent (100% minus 43%) will be the unearned TA portion, which Monroe College must return to the appropriate military branch of service.

      If a student has completed 61% of the course, all TA funds would be earned and no funds would be returned to DoD. For example, if the student’s withdrawal date falls on the 61st day of the semester, the formula used would be 61/100 or 61 percent of TA earned and no TA funds would need to  be refunded to DoD.
