Are there any additional costs that TA does not cover?
Yes. Tuition assistance does not cover your Scuba gear or the text book. You will be responsible for bringing your own gear to your first class (see above question). Overall, buying high quality gear will cost you about the same amount as renting gear for the duration of your program.
