5 Easy Steps
It is easy for military students to start or continue their education. If you are a new student ready to enroll in courses or programs offered by FTCC, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Apply for admission
All active-duty, National Guard and Reserve Army students seeking to complete a degree with FTCC by using Army Tuition Assistance (TA) need to apply to college through the GoArmyEd portal using the Common Application.
Soldiers who are new to using TA may access the GoArmyEd portal by following these steps:
- Connect to GoArmyEd and select the "New Users" tab in the top-right corner of the screen
- Visit your local education center to select your program of study and to submit your Tuition Assistance documentation.
Soldiers with deactivated accounts, who have previously selected FTCC as their home college must update their Common Application through GoArmyEd.Important Information
- Please make sure to designate "Fayetteville Technical Community College" as your "Home College". FTCC cannot see or receive your Common Application if your home college is not listed as Fayetteville Technical Community College.
- Only your Army Education Counselor can officially change your "Home College" in GoArmyEd. This cannot be done by a student or the school.
- Students who are staying with FTCC, but wish to change their degree program, must contact their Army Education Counselor to make these changes.
Once your application is submitted, an account will be created with FTCC.
