I've read a few places, including on the Veteran's Administration website, that the Federal Tuition Assistance program cannot be used for degrees "above the master's." However, it seems that people on this board have used the military TA program for a PhD. Did I misunderstand them; has anyone used their TA education benefits for their doctorate? My friend is in the Army National Guard. He doesn't want to use his Post-9/11 G.I. Bill benefits until he gets out when he might transfer the benefits to his son. I assumed that he could use his Federal TA benefits now without impacting his GI Bill, which is what I did when I was in the Guard. Anyone have experience in this area? Thank you!
