General University Reference Utility
The University has entered into an Education Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreement with the Department of Defense (DOD), whereby the University provides educational services to military service members participating in off-duty, postsecondary education programs. The University provides a variety of services, including the acceptance of tuition assistance funding from the service member's respective branch of Service, in helping these individuals reach their educational goals. As articulated in the agreement, it is of utmost importance that military service members can make the appropriate choices about educational pursuits without interference. University employees are committed to providing assistance in an objective, fair, clear, and understandable manner, and are bound by professional standards and applicable University policies that prohibit conflicts of interest.
This policy provides guidance to University employees providing assistance, while at the same time assuring the Department of Defense that those individuals choosing University postsecondary education programs will be treated in accordance with the parameters of the MOU.
This policy applies to all University employees providing assistance to military service members.
To eliminate aggressive marketing aimed at military service members:
Penn State Outreach (http://www.worldcampus.psu.edu/military) shall serve as a point of contact for military service members seeking information about available, appropriate academic counseling, financial aid counseling, and student support services at the University.
For questions, additional detail, or to request changes to this policy, please contact the Office of the Corporate Controller.
