For years, Regent University has been a local leader in helping veterans and military servicemen and women transition to civilian life through higher education. That role continues to grow as Regent partners with GoArmyEd, a virtual gateway for active duty, National Guard and Army Reserve soldiers to request tuition assistance for classroom and distance learning.

Celebrating with an official launch ceremony on July 1, Regent now has full status as a Servicemembers Opportunity/Letter of Instruction (SOC/LOI) school, and will now be accessible to soldiers seeking their institution of higher learning through GoArmyEd.

"This partnership is truly an answer to prayer," said David Boisselle, Regent's director of Military & Veterans Affairs. "GoArmyEd also puts us on equal footing with our competition for the great students coming out of the military, and we're honored to help serve Army men and women as an LOI school."

LOI schools sign a Letter of Instruction with the Army to integrate their schedule of classes and course registration processes with GoArmyEd. This makes finding and registering for classes a simple, seamless process for servicemembers, their spouses and their dependents.

"We look forward to meeting and serving many more soldiers because of this initiative," said Jessica Reid, Regent's certifying official who headed up the onboarding process with the portal. "Serving those who serve is what this is all about."

Joining the launch celebration from Washington, D.C., via Skype were GoArmyEd's SOCAD Associate Director Patrice Hamilton and Academic Liaison Michael Kamen.

"I was delighted to be a part of Regent University's innovative GoArmyEd LOI launch ceremony," Kamen said. "I look forward to working together to provide the highest quality of support to our nation's servicemembers."

Closing out the ceremony, Regent's vice president for Enrollment Management & Information Technology, Tracy Gregorio, announced further streamlining of the already-robust military discounts offered by Regent's College of Arts & Sciences. Semester fees will now be waived for any undergraduate student receiving Military Tuition Assistance.

"We want to take care of our soldier students and make their way to higher education as smooth as possible," Gregorio said. "It's a privilege to serve them."
