MINNEAPOLIS, April 17, 2006 Capella University, an accredited online university that has helped pioneer online education, is one of a select number of higher education institutions participating in a new initiative from the U.S. Army called GoArmyEd. This new tool provides a one-stop resource for active duty Army officers, enlisted soldiers, active Army National Guard, reserve, and mobilized reserve component soldiers, to manage their higher education and tuition assistance (TA) benefits. GoArmyEd is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at http://www.goarmyed.com.

“GoArmyEd is an initiative designed to streamline the approval and processing of the Army's Tuition Assistance (TA) program. It is designed to make the process of tracking and utilizing tuition benefits much more efficient,” says Jim Landerkin, Capella's Federal Program Manager. “Soldier-students will utilize the GoArmyEd portal for almost all transactions related to their enrollment at Capella, and we are pleased to be able to participate in this service.”
