Due to the current fiscal challenges, the Secretary of the Army has approved the suspension of tuition assistance. Put into effect Friday, the suspension applies to all components and will remain in effect until the fiscal situation matures.
Soldiers are no longer permitted to submit new requests for tuition assistance through the GoArmyEd portal. Soldiers currently enrolled and participating in courses approved for tuition assistance are not affected and will be allowed to complete current course enrollments.
Grey Edwards, Education Center chief on post, said if a Soldier is currently enrolled in a class and using tuition assistance, the class will still be covered.
Soldiers can continue to access their GI Bill benefits, if applicable (either the Montgomery GI Bill or the Post 9/11 GI Bill), or use another funding sources (i.e. grants or scholarships). Soldiers are encouraged to contact their local education centers for additional information.
The Army understands the impacts of this decision and will re-assess as the fiscal situation matures, said Lt. Gen. Howard Bromberg, Deputy Chief of Staff for Army G-1, in a message to education centers. Army National Guard Soldiers may still use state tuition assistance.
