An enrollment deadline for a military spouse tuition assistance program has been extended for spring classes.

People currently enrolled in the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts program, or MyCAA, may request financial assistance for classes with a start date before Jan. 31. The start date cutoff had been Jan. 15.

Financial assistance requests for the classes are due Oct. 21.

The popular program was halted Feb. 16 because of concerns about its cost. About a month later, it was reinstated for people already enrolled.

A revised version of the program will open on Oct. 25. It is limited to spouses of active-duty service members in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2 and O1-O2. There is a maximum $4,000 benefit for up to three years from the start of the first class, with an annual cap of $2,000. Funding is limited to associate’s degrees, certifications and licensure programs.

Previously, the program was open to all service members’ spouses with a lifetime benefit of $6,000. Anyone already enrolled who does not meet the new requirements will not be able to continue.
