The Education Staff provides quality services and programs to active duty, retirees, civilians and family members. Professional guidance counselors provide a full range of adult and continuing education counseling. Individual counseling is available during normal duty hours on a walk-in basis.
New Website for Army Tuition Assistance
The Army’s new TA portal, ArmyIgnitED.com, has begun processing TA requests! The Continuing Education Center is receiving and approving requests for both past classes (started in January to July 2021) and those starting in the future.
To request TA via the new portal, Soldiers first have to register/create a password at the site and then declare their Education Path (name of home school & degree program). Pages 10-13 of the attachment shows how to set-up an Edu Path. After their school has confirmed the Soldier’s Edu Path details, Soldiers are able to start requesting TA in the portal.
*** If Soldiers have technical issues with their account and are eligible for TA funding, the current temporary blanket ETP for TA policy is still in place where the school submits a TA request on behalf of the Soldier to the Army. However, the blanket ETP TA request process won’t be around forever.
Please visit the Army Education Center in building 2915 on Panzer Kaserne, or call them at 09641-70-596-2684 with any questions.
We have four institutions with face-to-face classes available for ID card holders. These institutions have contracts with the military to provide school representatives to assist with enrollment and support. (They also provide online classes and degree plans.)
