GO Army Applicants
Cal U Global Online is proud to offer seven approved programs of study through GOArmyEd, a virtual gateway that enables soldiers on active duty, along with their spouses and dependents, to request Tuition Assistance (TA) and apply and register online for approved classroom and online courses. This online portal automates many of the paper-based processes soldiers historically conducted with their Army education counselor.

GOArmyEd Application and Tuition Assistance
First, visit GoArmyEd to apply for one of the seven approved GOArmyEd programs and register for your classes. (Unlike other branches, active-duty Army soldiers who register through GoArmyEd do not need to fax a copy of their military ID or military orders with a note attached indicating they recently submitted an admission application.
It's important to note that California University of Pennsylvania does not allow for open registration into our classes. In order to take a class and process TA through the GOArmyEd portal, students must be in one of the approved programs and taking the classes in the prescribed sequence associated with the program. In some cases, a student can take just one course as a visiting student, but he or she would apply directly to California University and pay the $25 application fee. This must be completed outside of the GOArmyEd portal. Once the application is processed, the student must register via the Vulcan Information Portal (VIP), pay for the course by the billing due date, and process TA with the Army on his or her own by registering for the courses in the GOArmyEd portal. To access our Vulcan Information Portal (VIP) website, click here: VIP Portal Link Your Username is the first part of your email address (without the @calu.edu). Your password is your email account password. If you have not obtained your email address/password, go to the homepage and click on Quick Links and select Get Campus Username and Password - http://www.calu.edu/current-students/it-services/get-username/
The difference/amount that your Army TA will not cover is your financial responsibility and is due up front by the due date and/or start of each semester. It is the soldier's/student's responsibility to know how much the Army will be providing in TA per semester. You can view your status of TA via your GoArmyEd Portal account. In addition, you can view your Cal U billing statement via the VIP website as well as make the payment at VIP Portal Link.
