An Introduction to Army Reserve Education Benefits

While many of the programs available to members of the Army and Army Reserve are similar, some programs are unique to the Reserve. If you are a reservist, here is a list of programs that could help you complete your post-secondary education.

Army Reserve Tuition Assistance (TA)

Army Reserve Tuition Assistance helps you increase your professional and personal development by paying you up to $250 per credit hour to take college courses. TA has an annual cap of $4,500.

Army Reserve Voluntary Education Programs

As a reservist, you can use other programs, including GoArmyEd or SOCAD to pursue a post-secondary education.

  • GoArmyEd. A virtual electronic gateway you use to sign up for TA, access college courses and reports, and sign up for eArmy courses.
  • eArmy. With eArmy, you declare a "home" college, but can take courses from other schools closer to where you are stationed that are transferred back.
  • Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOCAD). A network of over 1,950 Army-approved schools offering two and four-year undergraduate degree programs. Schools within the SOCAD network guarantee you will not lose credits if you transfer within their network.
  • Concurrent Admissions Program (CONAP). At enlistment, you set up a college plan to use your military education benefits. You can choose from over 1,950 participating SOC schools where you can take classes and earn credits for your military training.
