With the temporary program expansion, online tutoring and homework help via is now available at no cost to any adult or child in a DoD civilian or Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve or Wounded Warrior military family who is trying to continue learning while managing unexpected changes to their routines, including: 

   •  service members, civilian personnel, spouses and college-age children who are enrolled in a college or professional development course,

   •  grades K-12 children who are now navigating at-home learning with less access to their teachers, and

   •  ROTC, NROTC, and DoD Service Academy Cadets who are wrapping up an academic year, and

Grades K-12 children in Active Duty military families are still eligible to use as usual. Program access also continues unchanged for Coast Guard military and civilian family members, who are funded by Coast Guard Mutual Assistance. 

Those who are newly eligible under the expansion should create a new account. Those with continued eligibility should use their existing accounts. Up to date eligibility info is available on the website or by clicking on each individual branch of service. 

We have created a new webpage with resources directly related to this expanded eligibility. Click here for 2020 outreach information.
