Our generous transfer credit policy, a suite of career-focused programs, and a dedication to flexibility make it easy to get started and stay committed to earning your degree, even if you get deployed.

Fort Bragg at Methodist University campus



In late August 2022, the Army launched its upgraded ArmyIgnitED Portal making it a more dependable, smoothly functioning system, and a better experience for soldiers. The Fort Bragg office staff is working closely with Army counselors at the BTEC to resolve TA issues as quickly as possible as we transition to the upgraded system.

To request Tuition Assistance, Soldiers must first create an account by visiting the upgraded ArmyIgnitED website, www.armyignited.army.mil, and click on “Login.” This will register your CAC to ArmyIgnitED. Second, soldiers must create an Education Goal (major) in ArmyIgnitED and get it approved by an Army education counselor before they can request TA. Lastly, soldiers must upload their Evaluated Degree Plan (EDP) to the portal. The Fort Bragg office staff will prepare EDPs and will forward plans to soldiers. Although uploading the EDP is a requirement, the Army has relaxed this rule for now to allow time for Academic Institutions to prepare plans. However, we suggest soldiers submit all required transcripts as soon as possible so that we can complete their transfer credit evaluation. Once this evaluation is completed, we can prepare EDPs as needed.

Attached is a Soldier Tip Sheet: Upgraded ArmyIgnitED System for your use/information.

Reminder! The Army is migrating FY21 and FY22 data to the upgraded portal and once completed, more information will follow concerning outstanding tuition assistance issues such as missing grades, outstanding TA payments, Historical TA requests, etc.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Fort Bragg office at 910.482.5425 or email at bbuckner@methodist.edu or ctorre@methodist.edu.
