The following correction to this story was posted March 12: "A March 10 story on soldiers seeking tuition assistance should have said that logging on to goarmyed.com will be required for all college courses."
ARLINGTON, Va. — Starting April 1, soldiers who want to ask for tuition assistance for online college courses will be required to log on to www.goarmyed.com instead of submitting a request on paper.
Soldiers will also need to go to the Web site to make requests to withdraw from or drop an “eArmyU” class, according to a recent Army announcement.
Eliminating paper requests should mean shorter wait in education centers and shorter lines in on-post school offices, education officials said in the announcement.
Any soldier can create a password-protected account by going to the Web site, the officials said.
The site includes an online help desk open 24/7. Soldiers can also contact their local education center for more information.
