Abstract
This thesis conducts a comparative analysis of all the military services' voluntary education (VOLED) programs and a cost benefit analysis on consolidation of selected VOLED programs into one DOD-wide program. There were three major criteria by which the VOLED programs were selected for consolidation: common purpose, shared goals, and same target audience. Bawd on the above criteria, Tuition Assistance, Functional Skills, and the Apprenticeship program were deemed suitable for consolidation. The Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges programs and Community College of the Air Force, which met the criteria, were deemed unsuitable due to overriding concerns about budget. The preliminary cost/benefit analysis indicates that consolidation or centralization of the Tuition Assistance, Functional Skills and Apprenticeship Programs are cost-effective
