eArmyU provides Soldiers with unlimited Army “e-learning” access to over a hundred degree plans at regionally accredited colleges and universities. You can earn your certificate or degree from a college at your convenience while taking online classes from multiple schools anywhere in the world, while you’re deployed or at home.

GOARMYED is the Soldiers' gateway to taking courses for college credit, earning certifications and furthering their Army training. In essence, it's an Army tuition assistance program. Through GoArmyEd, you can request online Army tuition assistance for classroom, distance learning and eArmyU online college courses. Eligible Soldiers will also receive 100 percent funding for tuition and course fees up to $4,500 per year.


College of the American Soldier works in conjunction with GoArmyEd and colleges whose degrees participate in the career Noncommissioned Officer degrees program. CAS expands existing civilian higher education degree choices to provide career NCOs with broad preparation degree options not tied to a specific Military Occupational Specialty and offers the following benefits:

  • Provides flexibility in degree completion time
  • Maximizes credit transfer between colleges
  • Maximizes college credit for military training and education
  • Minimizes academic residency requirements
  • Provides business and management-related degrees

Satellite Campuses

Most Army posts feature satellite branches of local accredited universities that let Soldiers attend college classes without ever leaving post. Credits earned on satellite campuses transfer automatically to the host university and allow Soldiers to earn credit toward everything from an associate’s to a master’s degree.


Another reason I joined was cause it gave me an opportunity to pay for college myself. My friends are paying close to 60-70 thousand dollars in loans and I'm getting paid to go to college.

You can earn college credit for military schools and training that you've done. I'm going to use my college degree to help me become an Officer.

The Army is a big part of my future it's already opened up opportunities I wouldn't have without it.
