CSU welcomes military students despite shutdown's effect on tuition assistance

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The GoArmyEd Tuition Assistance (TA) program is among the many government-funded programs that has currently been suspended during the government shutdown.

While this has created uncertainty for military personnel enrolled in college courses, and dependant on this assistance, Columbus State University has expressed its continued commitment to military members pursuing higher education.

CSU president Tim Mescon has authorized military personnel to register and attend classes pending reinstatement of military tuition assistance. Should tuition assistance not be forthcoming this semester, military personnel, who enrolled during this current situation will not be required to pay out of pocket for classes taken this semester.

"CSU remains indebted to our men and women in uniform for their sacrifices on behalf of our nation. We will continue to monitor this situation as it evolves," says Tim Turner, CSU Communications Specialist.

Anyone with questions may contact Dustin Worsley at 706-507-8785.
