Education Services

The Education Office provides the Members of the Indiana National Guard a comprehensive resource for their civilian education benefits through administering Federal Tuition Assistance, State Tuition Assistance, education counseling, testing and facilitating the GI Bill program. The Education Office's mission is to serve, advise, and assist Soldiers & Airmen with regards to these education resources.

GoArmyEd the Army's Virtual Gateway to Education-Anytime, Anywhere. 

GoArmyEd also supports Active Duty and Army Reserve as a one-stop Web site that allows Soldiers, Army Education Counselors, and schools to conduct business for all education needs in a seamless Soldier-centric environment.

Guard Soldiers are able to register for college courses or on-duty classes and review their student records 24X7. GoArmyEd links directly with schools to allow the Army to pay schools upfront, lifting that burden from Soldiers and ensuring that schools are paid in a timely and efficient manner.
