Off Ed Asst Application– Download and Complete the appropriate Program of Study form (located in the Educational Resources for Officers section of this website), including signing and notarizing the financial agreement, and send it to your Leader for Officer Development.

Once approved, you will be contacted by the ORD department at THQ and we’ll get you started on completing your degree.

Paying for your Course Work

Once you have received your notification for an Approved program of Study, you are able to register for courses (no more than 6 hours concurrently or 9 hours sequentially).

All Bachelor programs are covered 100% by Territorial Headquarters, and a second Bachelor is covered at 95%.  All graduate degrees are covered at 95%.

Because Officer Education Assistance is a reimbursement program, you will need to plan ahead to be sure you will be able to make payments at the time of registration.  Generally, there are two payment options for officers:

Cash/Check/Credit Card- with this option you will pay from your personal resources and seek reimbursement with the appropriate documentation.

Cash Advance – with this option, officers work with their corps accounts/finance departments to seek a cash advance, per territorial finance policy, to secure funds to pay for courses personally.

More on these options will be made available once approved for the program of study.

Once payment has been made, officers submit an application for reimbursement with the ORD department. Upon approval, reimbursement is secured through the officer’s appointment and THQ then reimburses the appointment for the official portion of the education assistance.

Once these steps are complete, the hard (and fun!) work begins… start crackin’ those books!
