Army Tuition Assistance Reinstated

Posted: Updated: - Some good news for military members seeking tuition assistance.

The program was shut down earlier this month thanks to sequestration budget cuts but congress has now agreed to reinstate the funding for the program.

The House agreed to a senate proposal Thursday to fund federal programs through September and the tuition assistance program was included in that proposal.

The president is expected to sign the proposal into law.
