If you will be using tuition assistance through the military, you will need to submit an approved TA Authorization to the Cashier's Office or Enrollment Center at your campus, and ask them to forward it to Longview for processing with a request to hold your classes.
If your TA administrator requests a program plan of study, you should be able to use a printed class schedule and account summary of fees. Your campus Cashier's Office should be able to provide this for you.
Each branch of service has its own rules and methods of applying for TA, so you'll need to contact your unit for application assistance. For additional assistance, contact the Longview Enrollment Center.
The new Department of Defense Memorandum of Instruction (DOD MOU) enumerated in Executive Order 13607, signed by President Obama and by MCC, establishes changes to Federal Tuition Assistance that will impact you starting July 24, 2014.
- Grades below a “C” for undergraduate work (certificates, associates, bachelor’s degrees) and grades below a “B” for graduate work will be recouped for classes with a start date of July 24 or after.
- Federal TA will not pay any fees. Make sure your itemized bill clearly shows the cost of “tuition”. If your itemized bill shows “undergraduate course fee” your tuition will not be approved. It must clearly state “tuition”. Tuition is the only cost the Army will pay.
- Federal TA applications MUST be approved before the start date of the class. All applications for federal TA must be submitted at least 10 days prior to the course start date.
It is important to backwards plan your enrollment process to meet the new deadline for submitting applications. For soldiers enrolling in the fall semester the following are preliminary and proactive steps:
- Verify your goarmyed.com user name and password. Log in now to verify it.
- Check to see if you have any holds on your account. If you do, start now at resolving the holds.
- Make sure you are not flagged at your unit for adverse actions, APFT or AWCP. Maintain the standards. If you are flagged at your unit it may take 45-60 days to have the hold removed on GoArmyEd.
- Enroll in your class(es) as early as possible.
- Contact Longview Enrollment Services and talk to an academic advisor. All required paperwork will be filled out by an Academic Advisor and emailed to the soldier for uploading to their GoArmy account
- Upload paperwork to GoArmy account.
