The ESO Message Board provides recent changes to programs or operating procedures in the NCNG Education Services Office. Review over each section for any recent changes to the program.
Federal Tuition Assistance Program (FTA/GoArmyEd):
Effective 24JUL14, all eligible tuition assistance (TA) requests must be submitted and APPROVED prior to the start date of class. This means, soldiers no longer have a seven day window after the start date to submit requests nor do GoArmyEd (GAE) administrators have 30 days from the start date of class to approve requests. Requests will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. Please remember that if you require a course planner, it must be APPROVED before you can submit TA requests.
North Carolina Tuition Assistance Program (NCTAP):
The 2015-2016 application is now available in CFNC.
With the exception of Ch 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill, State TA (NCTAP) has no impact on a service member’s GI Bill benefits.
The DoD ruling barring the duplication of benefits for service members using either Chapter 1606 or 1607 only impacts the Military’s Federal TA program (ie: GoArmyEd).
The State TA program (NCTAP) was not affected by the DoD ruling since it is a State funded program. Please refer to the School VA Certifying Official Handbook dated 09 February 2015, page 87, section: Chapter 1606 and 1607 Recipients.
Students may receive Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill and State TA (NCTAP) simultaneously provided the student is not at the 100% tier rate. If at 100%, service member should be approved to receive Ch 33 Post 9/11 not State TA (NCTAP).
GI Bill Programs:
Soldiers need to check their IPERMS record before requesting a Notice of Basic Eligibility (NOBE) for the CH 1606 (MGIB-SR) program. IAW DOD policy, NOBEs are IPERM'd and listed as DD 2384 in Soldier's record.
