 ESO Message Board

 
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):

All NCTAP Applications have been processed. Students can check the status of their application by following the steps on our website here.

Our office does not control when the State of NC will release funds to schools. When the State does release funding, the amount will display in the column labeled "disbursed/disbursement". If funding is disbursed but your school is showing no payment, the person with whom you are speaking may not be the same individual who handles payments from the NCTAP. You may need to speak with the Financial Aid Office. When inquiring, please ensure you tell them the NCSEAA adminsiters the NCTAP and awards and payment information will come through the NCSEAA portal.

Students need to check their CFNC preferred email if their application is still in a pending status . 

GI Bill Programs:
Due to a recent determination by the Department of Defense (DoD), Soldiers can no longer use Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA) and GI Bill benefits (Chapters 1606 and 1607) for the same course.  Soldiers may use both FTA and GI Bill benefits during a semester, as long as they don't use both benefits for the same course.  Please contact our office or your VA School Certifying Official (SCO) for further information.

 Tuition Assistance

 

Both the Department of the Army and the North Carolina National Guard provide tuition assistance to assist Service Members in furthering their civilian education. Students need to remember that both the Army's Federal Tuition Assistance Program (GoArmyEd) and the North Carolina National Guard Tuition Assistance Program (NCTAP) are reimbursement programs that are based on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Since both the Army's GoArmyEd program and the NCTAP are based on the availability of funds, Service Members should have a plan in place to potentially cover all of their tuition and fees prior to starting school.

Students new to using tuition assistance through the NC National Guard are strongly encouraged to visit the NEW STUDENTS PAGE.

Additional resources to obtain financial assistance are as follows:
