Through GoArmyEd, you can request online Army tuition assistance for classroom and distance learning online college courses.

You can earn your certificate or degree from a college at your convenience while taking classes anywhere in the world whether you are deployed or at home.

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.
