Bad news for all military - especially those that did not take advantage of their tuition assistance. Inside Higher Ed is reporting that budget cuts may require that military personnel pay up to 25% of their degree programs. The budget cuts would affect over 300,000 students who are using TA. It is not a done deal and there are other possibilities beside the 75%/25% split including lowering the $4,500 cap per year or lowering the $250 per credit hour. But they need the cost savings so some hit is coming to tuition assistance.
This is yet another blow to for-profit schools which have already seen a sharp decrease in enrollments.
