Military or Employer Provided Tuition Assistance

If financing your education with military or civilian TA (known as a third party payment), please provide verification to the UMGC program coordinator in your local UMGC office. If TA is pending, you should contact the Third Party Office to explain the circumstances via for military students or for non-military students.

Tuition assistance documents are typically written forms issued by a third party agency that guarantees payment. Military and civilian TA forms should be completed and signed by the appropriate authorizing official. You may submit forms and inquiries to the Third Party Office.

Outstanding debts are collected against refunds due to you. After a reasonable period of time, uncollected debts are forwarded to the Central Collection Unit of the State Attorney General’s Office.
