Additional Military Finance Information
Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is a program funded by the Department of Defense (DoD). Each branch of the military, to include the DoD itself, administers its own TA program differently and has its own eligibility requirements that its service members must meet in order to take part in the program. Likewise, each branch’s program has differing funding limitations, so it is important that anyone considering the use of TA make themselves familiar with their program by visiting their branch website and visiting their designated education center.
Getting Started at UAGC

No, you get to choose when and where to log in for participation in your class, which allows you to fit your class requirements into your busy schedule. Your online classroom takes place in an asynchronous environment, which means that you are free to participate at your own pace, so long as you meet the minimum attendance and academic participation requirements for your courses.
Students taking online courses at the University of Arizona Global Campus are expected to attend every week of the course. Attendance is defined as posting in a graded discussion forum or submitting a written assignment, journal entry, quiz, or exam. In most cases, you should expect to academically participate in your course at least two times per week. Failure to meet academic participation requirements may negatively impact an assignment or course grade.
In addition, you must meet minimum attendance requirements. Students enrolled in undergraduate introductory courses must attend at least once in any seven consecutive day period.
