GoArmyEd and Tuition Assistance

Jones International University is also a GoArmyEd upfront tuition university which enables you to receive Army Tuition Assistance (TA).  The Army will pay 100% of the tuition and authorized fees charged by a school up to $250/ semester hour and $4500/fiscal year. The program is open to nearly all soldiers (officers, warrant officers, enlisted) including Army Reserve and Army National Guard on active duty.  

In order to apply for TA you will need to create a student account through the GoArmyEd portal, and you must request TA through GoArmyEd.com, prior to starting any courses. All requests for TA are done on a course-by-course basis, and GoArmyEd will notify you if your TA has been approved or not. Any changes to your course work must also take place through GoArmyEd.


Jones International University is also a member of the Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAP) for Army enlistees. ConAP is a partnership between over 1,900 participating colleges, the Army Recruiting Command and Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC). As a ConAp member we’ve agreed to use good academic practice in accepting courses from other colleges, use the American Council on Education Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services (ACE Guide) to award credit for military courses that fit a student's curriculum and award credit for at least one nationally-recognized testing program.
