As a New Horizons student there are a number of tuition funding sources available, some of which you must qualify and apply for.
Your Career Consultant can help you identify the funding sources available to you and the one to best help you get started in your program of choice.
The Department of Defense (DoD) Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) program provides up to $4,000 of Financial Assistance for military spouses who are pursuing degree programs, licenses or credentials leading to employment in Portable Career Fields.
Spouses of DoD Active Duty members and federally activated members of the National Guard and Reserve Components are eligible. The period of eligibility for spouses of Guard and Reserve members is from the date of the Alert or Warner Order for Military Recall or Mobilization, through activation and deployment until 180 days following De-Mobilization. MyCAA Financial Assistance (FA) pays for education and training programs, tuition, and licensing/credentialing fees. MyCAA also pays for high school completion courses, CED tests and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. MyCAA does not pay for education and training programs that include computers (CPUs, laptops or other electronic devices); application, graduation or membership fees; student activity cards; child care; parking; transportation; or medical services. If a spouse enrolls in a course without an approved MyCAA Financial Assistance (FA) document, the spouse will be responsible for paying course costs. MyCAA does not provide reimbursements of any kind.

The TAA program helps workers who have lost their jobs as a result of foreign trade. The TAA program offers a variety of benefits and services to eligible workers, including job training, income support, job search and relocation allowances, a tax credit to help pay the costs of health insurance, and a wage supplement to certain reemployed trade-affected workers 50 years of age and older. Individuals must be approved by the local workforce development agency to receive this type of funding. For more information about TAA funding visit http://www.doleta.gov/tradeact
The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) focuses on job training for adults, dislocated workers and youth. WIA is a state funded, county administered program assisting individuals in acquiring skills necessary to obtain and maintain employment, which can include funding for retraining. Individuals must be approved by the local workforce development agency to receive this type of funding. For more information about WIA funding visit http://www.doleta.gov/programs/factsht/wialaw.cfm
Although the majority of training opportunities through the public workforce system are for individuals who are unemployed or underemployed, many states and local areas also support incumbent worker training as a critical facet of their regional economic development strategy. In fact, lifelong learning is increasingly the norm--and continuous skill development is often required to keep a step ahead of the global competition. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has granted states the ability to make flexible decisions about training dollars for incumbent workers. Different states have made different decisions about whether they will support such training, which high-growth industries will be eligible, and yearly limits, among other important considerations. To learn more about programs in your state and whether your company may qualify, visit your local One-Stop Career Center, talk to the local workforce investment board, or visit your state workforce agency.
