The Education Center provides the following services to all active duty military: counseling and tuition assistance; DANTES tests for college credit or professional certification; BSEP (Basic Skills Education Program); college reference catalogs for most universities in CONUS. Most DANTES testing is available for civilians on a fee basis. Classes and information resources are available to all.
The BSEP (Basic Skills Education Program) class is for service members desiring to raise their personal AFCT-GT score, or just brush up on math and reading skills. A pre-test is required for those enrolled in the class.
The Tuition Assistance program provides financial assistance for voluntary off-duty education programs in support of a service member's professional and personal self-development goals. All service members (officers, warrant officers and enlisted) on active duty and National Guard and Army Reserve on active duty pursuant to Title 10 or Title 32 U.S. Code, are authorized to participate in the TA program. Active duty members of other services who are supported by the Army under provisions of an Inter-service Support Agreement are also eligible.
Before obtaining TA, service members must contact an education counselor to declare an educational goal and an education plan. The Army Continuing Education System requires that a degree plan be in the Service member's Education File. Service members who do not have a degree plan must contact the counselor at the Education Center.
Credentialing Assistance Program provides funding for voluntary off-duty courses and/or exams leading to an industry-recognized academic or vocational credential.
