    Would a 2LT that is administratively discharged be required to pay back their USMA tuition? Where would I be able to find the regulation on this?

    I think it will depend a lot on the conditions of his discharge and why he was discharged. Based on your previous posts, was the discharge for medical reasons based on his injury at WP.

    So there is no official grace period for commissioned officers and paying back tuition?

    The service obligation for a graduate from WP is 5 years, 4 years for Scholarship ROTC. I don't think I ever read anything in the Contract regarding a Grace Period.

    No chapter, just a GOMOR, so far? If I understand correctly.

    Oh, the good news is GOMORs don't "officially" lead to separations. However, he maybe a terminal 1LT or CPT.

    Thank you LG. I had looked that up before, but couldn't find what I was looking for in regards to tuition payback. Could you direct me to the page in the AR if there is one. I am not used to AR's.

    They can lead to a board of inquiry, requested either by the officer's chain of command or next promotion board. A board of inquiry could require an officer to "show cause" for retention. If that occurs, the officers would have to demonstrate to the board why he/she should be retained. If it gets that far, though, the board will most likely vote to recommend that the officer be separated from service.
