Army Tuition Assistance (TA) Online Course Schedule

Welcome to Pierce College at JBLM! Our classes run on an accelerated 9-week session, and are held at the Stone and McChord Education Centers on JBLM.

Important Class Type Definitions

  • In-Class: course meetings are conducted face-to-face in a classroom on JBLM.
  • Hybrid: course meetings are split between face-to-face classroom sessions on JBLM AND through the internet using the Canvas learning management system. Classes are noted hybrid in the course schedule below.
  • Online: course meetings are asynchronous and are conducted through the internet using the Canvas learning management system.
  • OER: Open Educational Resources are course materials provided by your instructor in lieu of a traditional textbook at a cost of $0 - $10.

Important Notes on Tuition Assistance (TA) Guidelines

  • TA will cover the cost of course tuition only. This means you are responsible for additional costs, such as lab fees and textbooks.
  • TA requires a grade of "C" or better in each course. If a lower grade is earned, the Army will require repayment.
  • DoD TA requires enrollment 24 hours prior to the first day of the session.
