ALU is required by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Financial Management and Comptroller (OASA [FM&C]) to collect tuition for training of non-DOD agency employees, non-appropriated fund (NAF) employees, and DOD contractors.

Tuition charges cannot be waived. Tuition varies based on the specific course and its training location-DOD Contractors should contact the appropriate COR for specific tuition charges.

- Partial days are rounded to the nearest whole day for tuition purposes.

- Non-DOD agencies, NAF activities, and DOD contractors MUST submit a check made payable to the TREASURER OF THE UNITED STATES, with an SF 182, Request, Authorization, Agreement, Certification of Training and Reimbursement, or equivalent information for each student.

- The SF-182 must identify the student, course, class number, and class dates, be signed by the appropriate person authorizing the training, and sent to the training officer for ATRRS enrollment.

Checks will be delivered to the DEO Contract Reimbursement Officer (CRO) who will document and deliver to the CASCOM G-8 Budget Division for further processing and delivery to the US Treasury Department.

Non-DOD agencies and NAF employees will fax their forms to ALU for ATRRS input.

The contract administrator for DOD contractors will submit the SF-182 to the appropriate POC for the course as found on the course description page found here.

Training officers must ensure that students are coded as non-DOD or contractor personnel to facilitate collection of tuition. (See ATRRS VR display, table 15, for component codes.) The fax number for non-DOD forms is (804) 765-4240.
