This thesis compares Navy's Tuition Assistance (TA) program with those of the other services and private corporations and identifies some significant differences. It examines each organization's policy guidelines regarding benefit levels, courses and programs funded, restrictions and obligations, and requirements for individuals and institutions to be eligible for reimbursement Usage rates and costs of the Navy, Marine Corps, Army and Air Force TA programs were compared. Data from FY 1991 to FY1994 on voluntary education (VOLED) and TA finding levels, TA usage rates by numbers of individuals enrolled and enrollments, number of enrollments in each area of the program (high school, undergraduate, graduate, etc.), and cost per enrollment are presented. Tuition rates and trends for community colleges and four-year public and private institutions in areas of high concentrations of Navy personnel are noted. Changes to bring benefits in line with current tuition rates in the most cost effective manner are recommended. Internal controls to prevent waste, fraud and abuse were identified. The Navy's centrally managed program provides excellent controls and is probably the most effective and efficient of all the services' programs. (AN)
