Registration Tips:

  • Registration between CMU’s CentralLink and GoArmyEd is not real-time, therefore, please register as soon as possible through GoArmyEd ONLY to secure a seat in your class of choice (CMU Online classes fill very quickly). CMU will process registrations from the GoArmyEd daily registration report received from GoArmyEd (with the exception of the holiday closing period). You may also want to consider verifying your registration on CentralLink before purchasing books; therefore, if class rejections are processed within 72 hours of registration, you will not have made an unnecessary purchase.
  • If you want to receive Tuition Assistance, you must ONLY register through the GoArmyEd portal. The Army policy states “The Army portal is exclusively the reference point for all enrollment, withdrawal and drop transactions in terms of Army TA”. No Exceptions, effective November, 2006.
  •  If you are dropping or withdrawing from a class through beyond the period of 100% refund (when they may be responsible for 25%, 50%, or 100%) due to Military Necessity, please ask provide military documentation to Financial Operations Department immediately at 802 Industrial Drive, Mount Pleasant, MI 48858, or by fax at 989-774-3542.
  • If you cannot find the class you are looking for in the GoArmyEd portal, please contact your CMU Center Program Administrator or you may contact Sara Boykin at 1-800-950-1144 extension 3264 or via e-mail at, to verify the class information; and
  • If you have received notification of a student agreement hold on your Army account, please contact your CMU Academic Advisor at 1-800-950-1144 to develop a CMU approved plan. CMU will upload (FTP) the student agreement (program plan) to the GoArmyEd portal account as soon as an approved agreement is available. However, please keep in mind this process takes 48 hours, and that soldier MUST NOT request the education counselor or program administrator to e-file this agreement to their account. Please also verify that the degree plan in the GoArmyEd portal is exactly as it is on the approved CMU agreement (ex. MSA-GA; MSA-HRA…), this will eliminate errors to the uploading process for CMU. If a change needs to be made to a program plan, it must be made through VIA. Any additional questions can be forwarded to Sulynn Sommers, 1-800-950-1144 extension 3264 or via e-mail at
