If you’ve ever considered taking your education a step further, you should look to your installation for more information and assistance. They can help you decide if receiving an advanced degree is right for you, tell you which local colleges and classes are offered and find out if you’re eligible for tuition assistance. The Voluntary Education Center, or Installation Education Center, is available to help you put together a plan to advance your education.
Military spouses can also choose to engage with an education and career coach through the DoD’s Spouse Education and Career Opportunities program, or SECO. These coaches can assist them in exploring multiple tools, resources and information to reach their educational goals. To contact a career coach call 800-342-9647 or visit https://myseco.militaryonesource.mil.
The Army Continuing Education Services office creates a customer focused learning environment that integrates current education, training and transition programs to provide broad learning opportunities, facilitate access to services and enhance the visibility of all installation student programs.
The Army Education Testing Center in Bldg. 217 offers college admissions tests, aptitude tests, certification tests and interest inventories. Most tests are free to soldiers and scheduled through Army Education Center counselors. Army Personnel Testing (APT) including the Armed Forces Classification Test (AFCT), the Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT), and the Defense Language Aptitude Battery (DLAB) are also offered by the Army Education Testing Center. Tests for college credit such as CLEP and DSST are offered through The Ft. Riley Tutor Center in Bldg. 7656.
Leadership Skills Enhancement Courses (LSEC) are college courses offered on post during the duty day. These courses are offered at no cost to active duty soldiers, family members and DOD civilians. LSEC is designed to assist in the training of Noncommissioned Officers and soldiers
demonstrating leadership potential in the advanced skills needed to perform at higher‐level leadership and staff positions. LSEC benefits the Army by providing the soldier specific leadership training which will enhance performance of the soldier and the unit. Commanders can schedule training to meet unit needs or enroll the soldier in an open scheduled class.
LSEC is an on‐duty program and attendance in all classes is mandatory. Soldiers not attending all classes risk the possibility of failing the course for non‐attendance.
These courses provide soldiers the opportunity to complete an Associate Degree in General Studies or an Associate Degree in Military Studies. The LSEC program is open to the “Total Army Family”. Family members, retirees, retiree family members, members of the USAR and the Army National Guard are all welcome participants.
The following list contains the classes that are currently approved for credit and offered in the
LSEC program. Most of these courses transfer to the four‐year regents schools in Kansas and can contribute to the completion of a four‐year degree.
These courses are classes that are required for most first and second year college students, e.g., English Composition I, Speech, College Algebra, etc. Through the LSEC program a student can earn a full Associates Degree in General Studies at no charge. Books are also provided for use during the class at no charge to the student. Family members may also enroll in English as a Second Language and the GED preparation courses.
The language lab located in Building 7604 provides self-paced instruction primarily in German and Latin American languages. Courses in Korean and Saudi Arabian are also available. The language courses help soldiers, at no cost, to prepare for transfer overseas and are worth college credit.
Leadership Skills Enhancement Courses are leadership classes offered on post. Soldiers enrolled in these courses earn college credit at the associate degree level at no cost.
College classes offered on post are open to family members and DOD civilians. GED testing for family members is not available on post, but counselors can advise and refer interested persons to a local GED testing center. High school students may enroll in community college courses offered on the installation with the approval of their high school guidance counselor.
Soldiers can utilize Tuition Assistance, VA benefits and Federal Financial Aid to pay for courses. Soldiers who are enrolled in the Montgomery GI Bill® may use "Top Up" to pay for any tuition which exceeds the semester hour caps.

Colleges available at the Education Center include:
Military Schools, Training Division, DPTMS
Mission: The Individual Training Branch provides Soldier's Professional Military Education, Off Post Schools, and Sustainment Training services for all Fort Riley Soldiers, National Guard, and Army Reserve. Our vision is to provide the best administration of training services, and state-of-the-art classroom resources for all Soldier's individual training to be conducted at a single location.
Telling Our Story: The challenge of ensuring others know what we do, how we do it, and the positive impact we have continues. We are refining and enhancing the products we have to help others find out about us, and take advantage of what we have to offer.
Being Taken Advantage of (It's a Good Thing!): Another installation had a problem. They needed ALPS training for deploying Soldiers. The training was not able to be provided. Through our efforts of recording all known training offered at Fort Riley and making it known through ATRRS, the installation was able to discover that we offered the training and that the Soldiers there could get enrolled here and get the required training. Everyone wins!
Coordination with Directorates: Resources for civilian training are declining. We are working with DHR and Work Force Development to develop ways that we can integrate and cooperate to get the best possible training for the civilian employees of Fort Riley. Work Force Development is now located in building 8388, Military Schools. This allows us to leverage space and technology in the most focused manner possible. Military Schools (DPTMS) and Work Force Development (DHR) can now make use of shared resources to provide the smoothest, most integrated training programs in the Army.
Support to Fort Riley PME: There remains a significant backlog of SSGs that have not completed the Advanced Leader Course Common Core requirements. We're taking the initiative to set them up for success here at Fort Riley. Coordination continues with Human Resources Command to enroll a group of eligible NCOs and provide them the space, supervision and resources to ensure their success.
Support to USAR and National Guard and Others outside the Region: Every month we support between 30 and 90 soldiers from the USAR and/or National Guard. We routinely have Soldiers from other states to take courses that we provide.
Coordination with Other Agencies: The Fort Riley COMET is observing and participating in refining courses. Participation in weekly Sustainment Readiness Review meetings, HCEF, Equipping, PBAC, LRR is providing user level feedback on how we are doing. We Provide status on no-shows and upcoming training events that affect that audience. This also helps to identify logistics shortcomings that can be proactively addressed with training and education.
Technology Upgrades: We installed SmartBoard® screens for most of the classrooms. These boards allow for greater classroom interaction and multi-media use without the instructor having to stand behind the class to run the computer. We have 14 classrooms equipped with this technology. We acquired replacement projectors for all classrooms. This purchase replaced aging projectors and standardized the projector models in all classrooms. We will no longer have to keep replacement bulbs on-hand for six different models of projectors.
