Military Tuition Assistance (TA)

Louisiana State University at Eunice follows military policies and processes for the military Tuition Assdstance (TA) program for eligible members of the Armed Services. 

Each service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process and restrictions. It is recommended that you speak with your Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within your military service to determine which VA or Military benefit(s) you qualify for. Follow the links for information for your particular service:

You should NEVER schedule classes until approval from your ESO is obtained.  After you have determined your eligibility and have received approval to utilize TA, you must bring proof of eligibility to the Dean of Students in the Office of Student Affairs, Acadian Center, Room 112. The Dean of Students will work with financial aid, the Business Office, and veterans affairs to financially clear you for the semester. This must be turned in at least two (2) business days prior to the payment deadline for the upcoming semester.

 

Return of Unearned TA Policy

Tuition Assistance is awarded to an eligible student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded. To comply with the Department of Defense policy, LSU Eunice will return any unearned TA funds on a prorate basis through at least the 60% portion of the term for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when the student stops attending as outlined below.
