What is the period of time in which the education award can be used?

A member may use the education award for up to seven years after his or her last day of service. For a transferred award, the recipient of the transferred award can use it for up to ten years from the original award earner's service completion date.

In certain circumstances, the use period may be extended if the member was unavoidably prevented from using the award. To be considered for an extension, a member must apply, in writing, for an extension before the end of the seven year period.
