Can You Approve Your Own TA Request

I’m the Command Approver for my command. Can I approve my own tuition assistance requests?

Command Approvers should never approve their own TA/NCPACE applications.  It is a conflict of interest. The command approver verifies specific eligibility requirements.  The command approver must be your Commanding Officer or designated “By Direction Authority.”  If you are the “By Direction Authority,” request your command designate an alternate to approve your requests.
