U.S. Military and Veterans Education Assistance
Request for Tuition Assistance must be done through GoArmyEd. Contact your Army Education Counselor or Education Services Officer (ESO) for more information. This is the link to the “GoArmyEd Soldier Quick Start Training”. TA Requests MUST be submitted in GoArmyEd by no later than 10 days before the course start date.
The Army has very specific requirements for the documents necessary to verify course enrollment, tuition, and fees. If the documents are not submitted correctly on GoArmyEd, the Student Accounts office will not be able to pre-certify your enrollment. Please upload the three documents as specified below.
Tuition and Fee Statement: Use only the form provided by Student Accounts office; GoArmyEd will not accept the tuition and fee statement from VandalWeb. Once your schedule is complete and you will not be dropping or adding courses, please send an email to Patricia Edwards-Dixon requesting the correct tuition and fee statement. Include your full name and student ID number in this email. You will receive the tuition and fee statement back as an email attachment within 24 hours, excluding weekends.
Course Schedule: Use only the Schedule Planner from VandalWeb. The Army needs to see the course number, course name and credits for each course you are submitting for reimbursement.
Degree Plan: Use the Degree Audit from Vandal Web. Print this document and have it signed by your Advisor before submitting it in GoArmyEd.
GoArmyEd will let you submit other documents, but they will not send payment to the University of Idaho without the three documents specified above. Submitting the correct documents to begin with, will ensure the payment is processed smoothly.
Once everything is submitted to GoArmyEd, the ESO will do an initial approval. It will then go into a queue for Pre-Certification by the U of I. Patricia will verify the courses and credits submitted in GoArmyEd match the courses and credits you are enrolled in. Once the pre-certification is done, the file goes back to the ESO for final approval. At that time a Tuition Assistance Authorization form is created in GoArmyEd. The Student Accounts office MUST receive this document. You can print it and take it to the Student Accounts/Cashiers Office or download it to an email, and send it to Patricia.
Once Patricia receives the TA, your account will be credited for the amount the Army is expected to pay. An invoice is not submitted in GoArmyEd until after the final drop/add date, which is mid-semester.
Please contact Patricia if you have any questions.
Please provide your Tuition Assistance Authorization form to Patricia Edwards-Dixon in the Student Accounts office. It can be emailed or dropped by the office in the SUB.
