The Military Tuition Assistance (TA) benefit is no longer available at Southwestern due to governmental regulations which could potentially compromise the religious independence and confessional curriculum of the school. However, in an effort to support our military students, we are proud to announce an internal scholarship that will provide comparable benefits to those previously received by the student service member. Tuition Assistance is a Department of Defense (DOD) program for currently serving active duty, reserve and guard servicemembers. Tuition Assistance is not to be confused with the GI Bill, which is a program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Those students eligible to receive the GI Bill will still be able to utilize their benefits through Southwestern.
