Below is information on MyCAA for Continuing Education students only.

The Department of Defense (DoD) Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) program is a workforce development program that provides up to $4,000 of financial assistance to eligible military spouses of active-duty service members in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, and O1-O2. They must be pursuing a license, certification or associate’s degree in a portable career field and occupation. CTC is a proud participant in the MyCAA program and offers a number of high-quality, education programs to help prepare you for  high-growth, high-demand (in-demand), portable career fields.

For specific details about the program, to determine your eligibility and establish your MyCAA account, please visit the official MyCAA website

NOTE: The MyCAA program does not include Coast Guard spouses. Please review the MyCAA FAQs provided by the DoD for more program information including those items (fees, instructional materials, etc.) not covered by MyCAA.

Please follow the steps below to utilize MyCAA at CTC for Continuing Education programs:

  • Visit the MyCAA Spouse Portal online.
  • Provide required Spouse Profile information. A real-time DEERS eligibility check will confirm if you meet MyCAA eligibility requirements so you can move forward and establish your MyCAA Account. Those who do not pass this check will be provided additional guidance.
  • Military spouses may call Military OneSource to speak with a Spouse Education and Career Opportunities (SECO) counselor for assistance, (800) 342-9647.
  • MyCAA requires all students to submit an ETP prior to MyCAA funding classes. Please contact the Continuing Education's office at (254) 526-1586 to request a personalized ETP.
  • MyCAA approval can take up to 14 business days.
  • Apply for Financial Assistance (FA) each term. FA approvals are class specific and term specific.
  • Students are not able to apply for FA until 60 days prior to the class start date. Requests for funding must be submitted no later than 15 days prior to the class start date.
  • Obtain a copy of your FA approval by selecting the “Print FA” button next to the courses for which you will register.

Visit Continuing Education's office on CTC Killeen campus in building 136 room 139 to register and pay for class with your FA Form. Please note that MyCAA does not cover the cost of books and additional supplies.

Note: If you make any changes to your registration schedule (which includes classes, dates of classes, or total tuition) after you have a MyCAA authorization, it is your responsibility to make the corresponding changes in your MyCAA account to generate an updated authorization. The updated authorization must be submitted to CTC Continuing Education Department.Things to remember when requesting MyCAA funding:

  • When MyCAA funding is requested, the following information will be required: class start/end dates, course code, course title, and tuition cost.
  • Classes that have different start and/or end dates must be on separate FA requests.
  • FA’s can take up to 14 business days to be approved.
  • FA requests cannot be submitted retroactively.
