  1. The state of Missouri is processing tuition assistance on virtual armory line. 
    • Some notes which will be helpful during the input of your data.
      • IMPORTANT :   Tuition Assistance received counts against your maximum allowable financial aid – student loan – For example, if you plan to take out $18,500 in student loans – and you receive $4500 of Tuition Assistance, You will only be able to take out $14,000 in student loans.
      • Full amount of tuition for that course (SU-05:   $335 per credit hour; FA-05: $356 per credit hour)
      • If the start and end date of the class is different, you will need to do a separate electronic submission for each class with different dates.
