eArmyU and its technology have brought Army Education to the forefront of the e-learning arena.
Featuring a large and robust online learning portal, eArmyU ranks among the most innovative
and accessible distance-learning programs ever developed. Launched in January 2001,
this program is among a series of dynamic changes to transform traditional Army Education
by offering unprecedented access, choice, and flexibility in an online learning environment.
eArmyU focuses on the individual Soldier’s success–one Soldier at a time. Collectively,
these dedicated men and women are increasing their value to the Army while simultaneously
achieving their personal educational goals.
eArmyU provides Soldiers access to over one hundred degree plans at regionally-accredited
colleges and universities. Through eArmyU, eligible Soldiers have the opportunity to earn
a certificate or an associate, bachelor’s, or master’s degree from a home college while
taking classes from multiple colleges. Web-based classes offer unique “anytime, anywhere”
flexibility, allowing Soldiers to study at times that are most convenient for them – even
as their responsibilities, schedules, and duty assignments change.
The eArmyU Laptop Option is no longer available. If the Army is able to reinstate the
eArmyU Laptop enrollment option at some future date, Soldiers will be made aware of
any change through their local Army Education Centers and the GoArmyEd portal.
Currently, eArmyU is available to all Soldiers, but the services Soldier's
receive as part of the eArmyU enrollment vary (as detailed below);
- All Soldiers enrolling in eArmyU classes will have applicable class fees waived
- Only those Soldiers, who are in a current eArmyU Technology Package (Laptop)
Participation Agreement at the point of course enrollment, will receive the bundled
services, that is, course materials (books), Internet Service Provider (ISP) access,
and academic tutoring.
- Soldiers, who are not in a current eArmyU Technology Package (Laptop) Participation Agreement,
will not receive the bundled services and must purchase their own course materials, to include books.
These costs will not be covered by Army Tuition Assistance.
More than 32,000 Soldiers have permanently changed duty stations from their
original enrollment sites and now participate in eArmyU from 50 countries,
4 U.S. territories, and all 50 states. To date, more than 5,300 degrees have been
conferred on eArmyU Soldiers. Moreover, of all Soldiers who have enrolled in the program,
25 percent have either extended their service or reenlisted to be eligible for the program,
demonstrating how broadly eArmyU is supporting the Army’s vision across the Army enterprise
