Tapping into Army Tuition Reimbursement: Cha-Ching! - page 2

During the process of orienting to the post, we had a presentation at the Army Education Center about using our Tuition Assistance (TA) dollars. I listened with interest because I knew I wanted to... Read More

    Totally doable (going to school while deployed) IF you have access to a computer/Internet and even better if you have an Education Center at your FOB
    They were building a new one at Leatherneck and there was one at KAF.
    Also totally doable depending upon what your tasker is....This last deployment I was a trauma nurse coordinator and I did have time (after working 14 hour nights) to finish out the semester.

    I have a question:

    I know as officers we have a 2-year ADSO for using tuition assistance. However, I cannot find it written anywhere if the ADSO is concurrent or consecutive! Do you have any idea?

    Also, will the Tuition Assistance ADSO delay entry into LTHET? I just wanted to use TA to take a couple of pre-req classes.

    Of course I only think of these questions on a Saturday night when everything is closed!

    I believe the ADSO is just two years after your most recent class ends. I don't know how TA use affects LTHET, though, if at all. Are you planning on applying for LTHET? If so, which subject area? Good luck!!

    I'm thinking about it! I remember when I was posting questions about BOLC! I'm an 8A now and am totally loving it (except they just put out that we can't sign for the ISP until a year after the course as 8As, because they're not counting our hours in the course towards the CCRN. A year is flying by quick though!).

    I'm thinking CRNA, but not for a few years. We shall see!

    I know - time flies, right? If life had been different for me, I definitely would have jumped at LTHET. That is a great goal. Congrats on the 8A! The ISP will be sweet when you get it.
