No FY14 budget, tuition assistance suspended

  • Published

With the U.S. government failing to pass a fiscal 2014 budget, all tuition assistance for classes starting on or after Oct. 1 will be suspended until further notice.

As a result, effective immediately, the ability to apply for TA through the Air Force Virtual Education Center is on hold.   

“Airmen with approved TA for FY14 may incur debt with their school should they attend classes,” said Kimberly Yates, the Air Force force development office.  “Students should take action to withdraw from their current class or pursue using another funding source, such as the Montgomery GI Bill or the Post 9/11 GI Bill.”   

As information becomes available, it will be posted on and the AFVEC site, which can be accessed via the Air Force Portal.
