Two FAQs are posted below. One is new, and the other is an update. You can get the full list of FAQs by contacting your education center. You can also contact your education center if you have any questions about the FAQs, SNOW cases, or account creation. Thanks.

H. I will retire/separate soon. How will my courses get paid under the TA ETP once I am no longer in the Army?

Provided that you are otherwise eligible for TA and provided that the course has ended prior to your ETS, you should contact your school to request that the EI submit enrollment(s) via ArmyIgnitED. The EI must upload all ETP Enrollments. Once you are no longer in the Army, the EI may not be tracking your enrollment as an ETP enrollment. An Education Path is also a requirement to create an ETP Enrollment. Your Education Path must be in the system prior to ETS as you will be unable to access the account after your ETS date. Reach out to an Education Center/Office for assistance prior to your ETS.

L. As an officer (or warrant officer), I do not want an ADSO/RDSO from using TA. I am concerned that my EI will upload the enrollment data without my knowledge and that the ETP tool will create an approved TAR. How can I avoid this situation so I don’t get an ADSO/RDSO?

Contact your education center/office and request for a hold to be placed on your account. The Education Counselor must also place a note in ArmyIgnitED verifying that you will be paying for your tuition to prevent an ADSO/RDSO. This note will indicate to all counselors that they should not approve TARs for you that may be picked up in the third and/or fourth ETP runs.

Update to Tuition Assistance (TA) Exception to Policy (ETP) Guidance for Soldiers
1. Exception to Policy (ETP) Tuition Assistance (TA) Funding for Courses with Past Start Dates
a. Soldiers must have an approved Education Path and the Soldiers’ Educational Institutions (EI) must have uploaded an electronic course enrollment file into ArmyIgnitED in advance of 30 August 2021 when ArmyIgnitED will transform all course enrollments files submitted by EIs for courses with past start dates into TA Requests through an ETP draw. ArmyIgnitED cannot generate a TA Request for Soldiers without the Education Path and the enrollment file. Soldiers should verify in their ArmyIgnitED account that they have an approved Education Path to ensure they can receive ETP TA funding.
b. These TA Requests will route to each respective Soldier’s Army Education Center queue for review and approval by an Army Education Counselor. Once approved, EIs can invoice the Army to receive payment for these TA Requests.
c. ArmyIgnitED will process two additional ETP draws in the future, dates to be determined. Soldiers who are not able to receive TA funding during the 30 August 2021 draw due to an unapproved Education Path or missing course enrollment file will be able to receive TA funding during subsequent draws.
2. Soldier Resources
a. Soldiers can find instructions for submitting an Education Path in the TA FAQs uploaded to the ArmyIgnitED page and in the Soldier How to Guides (HTGs) uploaded to the ArmyIgnitED Service Center.
b. Soldiers who have questions about submitting an Education Path or about the ETP process should contact their assigned Army Education Center/Office. All Soldiers can find contact information for their assigned Army Education Center/Office at https://home.army.mil/imcom/index.php/customers/ACES.

Soldier Message on ArmyIgnitED Go-Live
1. ArmyIgnitED Phased Go-Live
a. Starting 19 July 2021, Soldiers Army-wide whose educational institutions (EIs) have uploaded their degree and course enrollment files can request TA for future dated courses in ArmyIgnitED.
b. The list of EIs with successful file uploads can be found on the ACCESS, ArmyU website at https://www.armyuniversity.edu/ACCESS/Home.aspx within 3 business days of this message. Soldiers can contact their Army Education Center for the list before it is uploaded to the ArmyU website. Green EIs have successfully uploaded 100% of files and Amber EIs are 99% or lower. The list of Green EIs will be updated on the ArmyU website as more EIs complete their file uploads.
c. Soldiers should create their Education Path and attempt to register for classes in ArmyIgnitED whether their EI is Green or Amber. Soldiers who have issues must first reach out to their assigned Army Education Center/Office for assistance. If the problem cannot be resolved, the Soldier must revert back to the exception to policy (ETP) process.
d. EIs that are not Green or Amber have not uploaded their course enrollment files. Soldiers should continue to use the ETP process to receive TA funding at these EIs.
e. The ETP process will be discontinued at a future date for Soldiers attending Green EIs.
2. Tuition Assistance Payments
a. All Soldiers attending Green or Amber EIs should submit an Education Path in ArmyIgnitED immediately to complete TA enrollment within ArmyIgnitED.
b. Additionally, Soldiers must have an approved Education Path in ArmyIgnitED for their ETP and any past enrollments to be processed for payment in ArmyIgnitED. Paying EIs will enable them to stop withholding diplomas and placing other requirements or restrictions on Soldier accounts.
c. Army Education Counselors will process all pending Education Path and Special Program Path requests in their queues to complete the enrollment process.
3. Soldier Resources:
a. Soldiers can find instructions for submitting an Education Path and TA request in the TA FAQs uploaded to the ArmyIgnitED Facebook and in the Soldier How to Guides (HTGs) uploaded to the ArmyIgnitED Service Center.
b. All Soldiers can find contact information for their assigned Army Education Center at https://home.army.mil/imcom/index.php/customers/ACES.

Can you post the FY20 BSEP and GT Improvement class schedule? I did look over the page and did not see it. Thanks.
I was wondering if there is any type of online training or any classes that I could do to possibly get certifications that would go on my JST for credits towards my degree. If anyone knows of any the information would be very appreciated.
