Have Questions? Here you can find some of the more common answers about Federal Student Aid, Tuition Assistance, and GoArmyEd®.
Yes. All courses that require textbooks can be shipped to an APO address.
Yes. Federal Student Aid can be combined with TA or GoArmyEd benefits when enrolled in a term learning option.
CSU is not able to award Federal Student Aid in either the LifePace Learning or Veterans Advantage enrollment models. Only the term enrollment model is eligible at CSU.
Veterans should visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website, VA.gov.
The Veterans Online Application (VONAPP) is a website that enables service members, veterans and their beneficiaries to apply for veterans’ benefits. Visit VABenefits.VBA.VA.gov to learn more.
No, but it is recommended that we receive the CSU application before the soldier makes changes in the GoArmyEd portal.
Tuition Assistance is placed on hold. Students must raise their GPA by taking courses using another payment method in order to be eligible to use the TA again.
