Contact an Education Service Officer or counselor within your military service branch prior to enrolling at NOVA to obtain Tuition Assistance (TA) benefits. Tuition Assistance course approval must be authorized before the first day of classes. However, some service branches require approval a week prior to the first day of classes.

Military Tuition Assistance Resources
