Just days after the Marine Corps announced it would suspend enrollment for its Tuition Assistance program, Army officials announced they are following suit.
The Army suspended its Tuition Assistance program because of sequestration cuts. The change applies to active-duty soldiers, the Army National Guard, and Army Reserves.
According to the Department of Defense, the Army will not be accepting any new applications for the program. However, this suspension will not affect soldiers currently enrolled in classes.
As Home Post recently reported, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced Saturday that one of the immediate consequences of sequestration would be the ceasing of new U.S. Marine Corps enrollments in voluntary education tuition assistance.
