Troy University has been an education partner of the United States Air Force since 1965.  In addition to the broad range of TROY degree programs taken by members of the Air Force at undergraduate and graduate levels over the past 46 years, the University is also proud to be an Air Force partner in two of the Air Force's specialized education initiatives.  The General Education Mobility initiative (GEM) is designed to facilitate completion of the General Education requirements of the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) associate degree program.

National Guard Education Benefits

United States Coast Guard

Troy University supports the United States Coast Guard's workforce development initiatives by providing an onsite Master of Science in Management degree to active-duty military and Civil Service employees.

United States Army Continuing Education System

Troy University serves members of the United States Army through continuing education.

Yellow Ribbon Program

Troy University has pledged to support military veterans and active-duty personnel attending college by providing the maximum tuition assistance allowed through a special program in the latest version of the G.I. Bill called the Yellow Ribbon Program.

 

 

The Post-9/11 GI Bill or CH33 is a new education benefit program for individuals who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001. The Post-9/11 GI Bill allows for a tuition and fee benefit to be paid directly to Troy University, a monthly stipend to the service member, and a book stipend of up to a $1,000 per academic year.

The University has pledged to close any gap between the benefits provided under the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 and the cost of tuition at Troy University by paying 50 percent of the established tuition and fee charges not already covered under the bill. A special provision of the bill establishes the Yellow Ribbon Program that allows colleges and universities to offer the tuition waiver. The Department of Veterans Affairs will match each additional dollar funded by the University.

Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges

Troy University is an affiliate member of the Servicemembers' Opportunity College (SOC) network which was created in 1972 to provide educational opportunities to service members who, because they frequently moved from place to place, had trouble completing college degrees. Troy University will issue an SOC agreement for degree completion to any military student. Civil service and military dependents may request an SOC agreement. In order to obtain an SOC agreement, the student must have successfully completed six semester hours and met admissions requirements. The SOC contract will list all of the degree requirements required for graduation with Troy University. All coursework must be completed at regionally accredited colleges or universities or from acceptable non-traditional sources, if applicable. Students must complete degree requirements within eight calendar years after the SOC contract is approved.

Military Credit

Troy University recognizes the educational benefits of many experiences that occur outside the formal structure of accredited colleges and universities. Credit may be granted for military experience based on MOS (Army), AFSC (Air Force), or equivalent ratings by Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

Service school courses will be evaluated according to the recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE Guide) when official credentials have been presented by the student. Such recommendations, however, are not binding upon the University. Troy University accepts a variety of CLEP exams, DSST (DANTES SUBJECT STANDARDIZED TEST) SCORES, and Advanced Placement (AP) exams.

Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA)

The Department of Defense (DoD) MyCAA program provides financial assistance for military spouses who are pursuing education in programs leading to employment in Portable Career Fields.  Spouses of active duty members of the Department of Defense and activated members of the National Guard and Reserve Components are eligible as well.  Troy University offers on-site and online programs supporting participants in the MyCAA program.
