A soldier receiving federal and/or state tuition assistance is responsible for turning in grades thirty days after the semester ends.  Failure to turn in grades could result in failure to receive future tuition assistance.  

If classes need to be dropped because of military orders, a withdrawal form along with a copy of the orders will need to be supplied to the school.  If classes are dropped, withdrawn, repeated, failed or are incomplete and you have received tuition assistance for those classes, it is the soldier’s responsibility to reimburse the tuition assistance paid.  Failed, dropped, withdrawn, repeated or incomplete classes could result in a repayment of federal and/or state tuition assistance funds.  If repayment is not received, future tuition can be denied until funds are repaid and/or the account could be turned over to collections.  Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA to qualify.
