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:

Soldiers with deactivated accounts, who have previously selected FTCC as their home college must update their  Common Application through GoArmyEd.

Important Information

Once your application is submitted, an account will be created with FTCC.

Step 2: Provide necessary documentation to FTCC


To be fully admitted to FTCC, all students must submit their High School transcript and complete a Common Application. To receive potential transfer credit, students should submit the following official transcripts: Joint Service Transcript (JST) and transcripts from any previous institutions attended; and any official score reports for College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Advanced Placement (AP), Defense Language Proficiency Test (DLPT), and DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST).

This is an Army requirement to participate in TA program.

Once a student has been approved into a Program of Study, a Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOCAD) agreement will be processed and loaded in the soldiers GoArmyEd account.

Step 3: Plan which course(s) you want to take

After submitting your Common Application, FTCC will notify you by email and letter within 2-3 business days letting you know your seven-digit student ID number, default password, and additional instructions for logging into WebAdvisor and Blackboard.

While you are waiting for your password, take the time to review the degree requirements for your major.

Step 4: Register for courses

All active, Reserve Army, and National Guard students who wish to receive TA for their course(s) must register through the GoArmyEd portal. The courses are available for registration in GoArmyEd 2 months prior to the course start date.

Step 5: Pay for your courses

All Army students who register for courses via GoArmyEd will be prompted to verify the correct payment information prior to completing any course registration. As you proceed through the steps, the 'Enrollment Request Information' screen will be displayed. Please be sure to review the class cost information closely. Pay attention to the class cost covered by TA (in the GoArmyEd Amount field) and the class cost that you must self-pay (in the Student Amount field). Any amount listed in the 'Student Amount' field will then be billed to you by FTCC.

Note: Any registrations that take place outside of the GoArmyEd portal will generate a charge to your FTCC account, which you must pay. Information on tuition rates can be found on FTCC's  Tuition and Fees  page.
