- Member receives an "F" or "Incomplete" for the course.
- Enlisted person separates prior to course completion date or officer separates prior to fulfilling the service obligation set forth in ALCOAST 012/09.
Exceptions TA payback requirements include:
- Individuals non-selected for promotion and scheduled for retirement and/or separation (i.e., are being mandatorily separated due to non-selection for promotion or continuation) who had TA requests approved prior to the announcement of the board results that resulted in mandatory separation. Exception: If the course has not started upon announcement of the board, the TA authorization must be cancelled.
- Discharged for reason of Convenience of the Government in connection with a reduction in force.
- If member is discharged under provisions contained in ALCGOFF 045/10 or ALCGENL 046/10, the member will be required to repay Tuition Assistance (TA) at a prorated amount. Example: Member receives $750 in TA funds. The course is 3 months and the member is departing 1 month prior to the end of course date. $750/3 = $250. The member will be required to repay $250.
- Separated by reason of physical disability, illness, injury, or other impairment incurred in the line of duty and not due to misconduct; or receive a hardship discharge.
