How to Request TA and Enroll in a Class

TA Requests must be submitted before the class starts, or no later than the final day of the school’s late registration period.

Depending on the school you attend, you will be presented with one of two enrollment paths. GoArmyEd will determine your path automatically and all approved TA will be paid directly to your school by the Army upon successful class completion. If your school uploads classes and tuition costs to GoArmyEd, you will be presented with the following process:

  1. Log in to GoArmyEd.
  2. Select the “Request TA” Smart Link.
  3. Confirm your school name is pre-populated and the class start date range is correct, then select “Next.”
  4. View Class Search Results. Select the “Class Details” button before enrolling to view more class information (e.g. class description, semester hour costs, prerequisites, required class materials, etc.)
  5. Select “Request Class” for your desired class.
  6. The Confirm Classes screen displays class cost information. Be sure to review the cost covered by TA and any cost you must self-pay. Select “Process Enrollment” or “I Agree To Pay.”
    Note: If TA does not cover the entire cost of the class, you are responsible for the remainder, which will be billed directly by the school.
    Note: Do not X out of page. Select “Cancel Request” if class selection is in error.
  7. Review and update your account information if necessary, then select “Account Information Verified.”
  8. The View Results screen displays the status of your enrollment request. If the Status column shows a green check mark, you have successfully enrolled, pending final approval from the school. You will receive an email confirming enrollment. 
If your school does not upload classes and tuition costs in the portal, you will need to supply class information in an online TA Request. You will presented with the following process:
  1. Log in to GoArmyEd
  2. Select the “Request TA” Smart Link.
  3. Confirm your school is pre-populated; enter the class Subject, Catalog, and the Class Start Date. Select “Next.”
  4. The TA Request displays. Complete each required field in the Class Information and Class Cost sections. Select “Calculate Cost” to populate the Invoice section so you can see the final Army and Soldier cost.
  5. Review your TA Request for accuracy and then select “Submit."
