The U.S. military's Tuition Assistance program has been reinstated. The Department of Defense said Wednesday that it will pick up the tab for all four branches of the military.
The Army, Marines, and Air Force had recently suspended their tuition assistance programs due to forced budget cuts. But, Congress passed a government funding bill which prevents the Pentagon from making cuts to the program.
Service members can receive up to 45-hundred dollars a year to continue their education.
