Taking advantage of your tuition assistance while serving on active duty is one of the smartest ways to secure your future. I used TA throughout my time in the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force and left active duty with a bachelor’s degree.

This freed up my GI Bill to spend on graduate school after separation; not to mention the credits earned while serving helped me advance in rank.

Everyone’s situation is different, but no matter where you are on your educational journey, the green machine is serious about your success as a soldier.

ArmyIgnitED is the U.S. Army’s newest tool to empower soldiers to find the degree, credential, or training that’s right for you and your situation. Replacing the GoArmyEd site, ArmyIgnitED is a tailored, intuitive resource that gives soldiers a platform to achieve their educational goals.

My education from American Military University was one of the best investments I ever made; what’s more, I didn’t pay for any of it!

Tuition assistance for training, degrees, or credentialing is one of the benefits you have earned. Don’t let that benefit go to waste.
