Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded. To comply with the Department of Defense (DOD) policy, Centenary University will return any unearned TA funds on a prorated basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionately during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending.

In instances when a Service Member stops attending due to a military service obligation, Centenary University will work with the service member to identify solutions that will not result in a student debt for the returned portion of TA as mandated by DoD policy.

Centenary University will invoice the Service Branch of the student after 60% of the enrollment period has passed, which will reduce the chances of incorrect TA funds being disbursed.  Centenary University will invoice the Service Branch for the amount the student earned for the enrollment period.
