Active Duty

CWU-JBLM is located at the Stone Education Center at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) in Tacoma, Washington.  Active duty military, veterans and their family members, as well as civilians, can now earn a bachelor’s degree or certificate at a public university on base after earning their associate degree.

Tuition Assistance (TA) - In general, eligible active duty Service members can receive TA at a rate of $250 per semester hour cap with an annual ceiling of $4,500. The Services are authorized to establish Service specific eligibility criteria to manage TA funds. TA funds are a unique, distinct source of financial aid available to eligible Service members.  TA benefits will be applied to a student account prior to the application of other federal grant funds.

For Service specific TA policies and procedures, visit their voluntary education websites.  Each quarter a student would like to utlize TA, they are required to submit an application through their respective portal to receive approval from their ESO, military counselor, or service.   

*Note: that each Service has its own criteria for eligibility, obligated service, application process and restrictions that may not mirror the standard policy. Please check with your Education Services Officer (ESO) to determine the benefits available to you. For more information on Tuition Assistance, visit the DANTES website.
