GoArmyEd School Registration FAQs

A1. If you are experiencing problems accessing the Army Credentialing and Continuing Education Services for Soldiers (ACCESS) Web page at Instructions for Schools to Participate in GoArmyEd to view the School Participation Instructions for One Portal, most likely your browser is not set up with a Department of Defense (DoD) Security certificate. If a link appears on the warning screen which will allow you to continue, it is safe to click and proceed to the Web page. If not, please go to https://public.cyber.mil/pki-pke, click InstallRoot 3.16.1 A and download the zip file. Open the downloaded zip file, navigate to the Windows folder and double-click InstallRoot_v3.16.1A.exe or InstallRoot_v3.16.1Ax64.exe to install the certificate. Please make sure to close and re-open your browser before proceeding back to the ACCESS homepage.

Q2. My school does not accept credit cards for payment of tuition. What other forms of payment can we use?

A2. The Government Purchase Card (GPC) is the preferred method of payment for all Army tuition payments. The Government has a contract with US Bank/SmartPay to provide VISA card services. In accordance with the rules for VISA merchants, if your school accepts VISA as a form of payment from one party, you must accept VISA from all parties. If your school does not accept VISA as a form of payment, then you will need to request a GPC exception. A GPC exception request can be initiated by selecting other Payment Method during your school profile set-up. An Army Education Representative will contact you to discuss your GPC exception request.

Q3. How do we invoice the Army under the Tuition Assistance (TA) program?

A3. For detailed information on invoicing, please review the information on the Army Credentialing and Continuing Education Services for Soldiers (ACCESS) web page at Instructions for Schools to Participate in GoArmyEd listed under "Access Non-LOI School GoArmyEd Help Setup". Further training will be available through the GoArmyEd portal after your profile has been established.

Q4. We have multiple locations; do we have to establish a primary Point of Contact (POC) at each location?
