Are Navy Reservists eligible for tuition assistance?
Reserve Enlisted personnel must be ordered to active duty for at last 120 consecutive days for tuition assistance (TA) eligibility. They must remain on active duty throughout the entire term of the TA funded course.
Reserve Officers on active duty are eligible for TA only when they have orders to active duty extending two years beyond the expected completion date of any TA-funded course(s). This service obligation runs concurrently with any remaining obligated service time. The agreement does not obligate the military service to retain the officer on active duty. See OPNAVINST 1560.9A dtd 4 MAR 2008 (page 3) and NETCINST 1560.3 dtd 20 JAN 2011 (page 2-1).
