Coast Guard Tuition Assistance & Transcripts

Using Coast Guard Tuition Assistance

Register for classes using TESU's Online Student Services (We hold a spot for you in the class(es) while your TA is being processed).

Send a copy of the approved tuition voucher to ta@tesu.edu or fax it to (609) 984-7143. Include your student ID# on the document. Please do not include your social security number. 

Your registration is not complete until we receive your authorized TA!

Visit your Education Office to discuss your degree plan. The Education Office will also be able to assist you in determining if you are to use WebTA or the Application for TA Form (CG-4147). Prior to submitting your TA request, you should provide your ESO with documentation confirming the per-credit tuition and fees
