Tuition Assistance - Using the Military Benefits You've Earned

OU Extended Campus participates in the Department of Defense Tuition Assistance (TA) programs. We serve as a liaison to the DoD in processing TA and other military educational benefits.

TA can go a long way toward making your education more affordable.
