REVIEW YOUR ELIGIBILITY:

If you are currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces:

  • Contact your military branch’s education office to find out what benefits are available to you
  • Work with your Education Service Officer or counselor to set up your paperwork in preparation for Tuition Assistance authorization and any other potential benefits

REVIEW YOUR COSTS AND APPLY TO ESCC:

You should understand the cost of tuition, fees, and books for attending ESCC.

Book costs for courses can vary. The new ALL-IN Textbook Rental Program will start Fall 2022. If you opt in for this program, The ALL-IN Program fee is $25 per credit hour. All classes will be included in the new program, except Aviation Maintenance Technology, Avionics, Mechatronics, and specific academic classes that do not require a book. All required course material will be covered in the ALL-IN fee, except specialty kits. (Students are not required to participate in the program, so there is an option for students to opt-out of this program if they do not feel it will benefit them. However, students are urged to remain in the program for the financial benefit they will receive. If a student chooses to opt-out, this must be done prior to any tuition payments being made or financial aid disbursements being processed to a student’s account.) To find more information on the ALL-IN Textbook Rental Program, please visit the ESCC website.

SUBMIT YOUR DOCUMENTATION ON PRIOR EDUCATION:

Send the Admissions Office official transcript(s) and a photo ID at admissions@escc.edu. If you are transferring credits from a post-secondary military or civilian institution, the Admissions and Records Office will also need your official transcripts. A Joint Services Transcript is required.

All college and military transcripts should be submitted to the ESCC Admissions Office via email at admissions@escc.edu or by mail to Admissions Office, P.O. Box 1300, Enterprise, AL 36331.

REVIEW AND APPLY FOR YOUR TA BENEFITS:

Each branch of the military has specific benefits, as do veterans and spouses. Follow the military service branch and component specific instructions on how to request Tuition Assistance for your course(s). Take note of the TA application instructions/deadlines specific to your branch.

TA APPROVAL:

GoArmyEd service members must submit requests in the portal and notify va@escc.edu that you have submitted a TA request. All other branches of service must submit your approved TA request to the Financial Aid/VA Office for processing (email to va@escc.edu).

TA APPLIED TO YOUR ACCOUNT:

The Business Office will process your approved TA request and post the credit to your student account. Please ensure you review your student account to ensure your TA is posted.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT MILITARY TUITION ASSISTANCE:

  • TA is requested on a course-by-course basis, and each course must be part of an approved degree program.
  • TA cannot be used for a lateral degree (you cannot use TA to earn a 2nd associate degree).
  • TA can be reimbursed for up to 100% of the course cost, not to exceed $250 per credit hour. Up to $4500 per fiscal year applies for Air Force, Navy, and Marines. The Army cannot exceed $250 per credit hour, up to $4000 per fiscal year. The Coast Guard cannot exceed $250 per credit hour, up to $2250 per fiscal year. (Fiscal year resets on October 1).
