Return of Tuition Assistance: Military 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 Department of Defense policy, Point Park University will return any unearned TA funds on a prorate basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided.
