Army Suspends TA Effective 8 March … Army G1

“Due to the current fiscal challenges, the Secretary of the Army has approved
the suspension of Tuition Assistance (TA) effective 1700 EST Friday, 8 Mar
13. The suspension applies to all components and will remain effect until
the fiscal situation matures.

Effective 1700 EST 8 Mar 13, Soldiers will no longer be 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(s) enrollment.

Soldiers can continue to access their GI Bill benefits, if applicable
(either the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) or the Post 9/11 GI Bill), or use
another funding sources (i.e. grants, scholarships, or Army National Guard
Soldiers using state Tuition Assistance). Soldiers should be encouraged to
contact their local education centers for additional information. Updated
information will also be posted to www.goarmyed.com.

The Army understands the impacts of this decision and will re-assess as the
fiscal situation matures.

Army Strong!
