Requesting Army Tuition Assistance (TA)

Fall 2022: Soldiers who failed to submit a TAR for a previously completed course due to ArmyIgnitED 1.0 system errors may have a counselor submit a historical TAR on their behalf. Soldiers will provide documentation for the course to include course name and number, course cost, course final grade, and the start and end dates. This documentation must include the Soldier’s name and the name of the AI.

Important Notes

  • Soldiers may submit Tuition Assistance Requests (TARs) within ArmyIgnitED up to 60 days before the class start date but must submit the requests no later than seven days prior to the class start date.
  • Soldiers must request TA in the ArmyIgnitED portal prior to registering with their Academic Institution (AI) for classes. If they are unable to register with their AI due to being waitlisted, they should still request TA in the portal for the waitlisted course no later than seven days from the course start date. If they do not get a course seat, they can then cancel the course in the portal with no cost. If they do not get into the original course but are offered another course, Soldiers can seek assistance from a counselor to have their original course information updated. Counselors can update TARs in the system, except for course start date.

Finding Your Ed Counselor

All Soldiers are assigned to an education center which can be viewed from the ArmyIgnitED dashboard on the upper right of the homepage screen. Soldiers can also message their Army Education Center using the “Messages” function within the ArmyIgnitED account.
