I am officially being medically retired at 50 % DoD / 80 % DoVA in the middle of a semester that I am using Tuition Assistance for. I found an old thread from 2011 that had conflicting responses, so I was hoping someone could help clear things up for me and anyone else with the same worry. Being that I am being medically RETIRED, will I still have to pay back the tuition assistance for the courses that haven't been completed by my retirement date? Some are stating that, being that this is an involuntary retirement, TA falls into the category of things like bonuses, meaning it will not need to be paid back. Others are stating that, unless the course in completed prior to the retirement date, you must reimburse the TA 100%. Does anyone know what is true? If I have to pay back for this semester, I'm looking at roughly $2,000 out of pocket suddenly. I appreciate any help, thanks.
