Do you have a GoArmyEd account?

If you are a new UMUC Europe Army student without a GoArmyEd account:

  2. The New Users tab will guide you through the processes necessary to obtain a login and establish a GoArmyEd account. This does not obligate you to take GoArmyEd or any other college courses.

Withdraw from courses using the GoArmyEd portal.

If you need to withdraw from a class using the GoArmyEd portal, the withdrawal must be done online through www.GoArmyEd.com. The withdrawal will be forwarded to UMUC Europe for processing. The published UMUC Europe withdrawal policy will be used to determine any refund as well as your grade for the course.

  • If you withdraw for personal reasons, you will be required to repay the TA. Repayment procedures will be initiated by GoArmyEd, and will take place through an automated feed between GoArmyEd and Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS).
  • If you withdraw for military reasons, unit commander information will be required along with the military reason for withdrawal. The request is subject to verification. If the military reason is approved, TA repayment will be waived. All information and transactions occur online through GoArmyEd.

Student agreements must be completed prior to completing six semester hours with the university.

Request official transcripts from all previously attended colleges or universities, test results (CLEP, DANTES, Excelsior College Exams), and appropriate military documents be sent directly to UMUC Europe undergraduate or graduate programs. This allows us to complete your student agreement prior to you completing six credits with the university.

The university will automatically be notified of the date your student agreement is due. Please do not submit a request for an official evaluation for the program listed in your GoArmyEd portal. Remember, until all documents for an undergraduate official evaluation or for graduate admission are received at UMUC Europe Headquarters from the issuing institution, your student agreement cannot be posted to the portal. Please request your documents as soon as possible so your ability to use Army TA is not interrupted.

A listing of the academic programs available through UMUC Europe is found on the GoArmyEd portal. Please select the letter U, as the schools are listed alphabetically. You will find all of the graduate and undergraduate offerings listed under University of Maryland University College Europe.
