U.S. Coast Guard to Reinstate Tuition Assistance

Press Release
Friday, March 22, 2013

The U.S. Coast Guard joins the Department of Defense in reinstating tuition assistance in response to an amendment that was inserted into the General Provisions of the 2013 Appropriations Bill.

The amendment to the Appropriations Bill submitted by U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), directs the U.S. Coast Guard, a component of Department of Homeland Security, placed under the category of "other departments or agencies" to restore funding for Tuition Assistance set aside under Sequestration.

The U.S. Coast Guard has averaged nearly 10,000 enrollees a year for the last three years and expected around the same number this year. To date 7,000 members have participated.

U.S. Coast Guard officials are working to establish a timeline for reinstatement of Tuition Assistance.
