College/Technical Training

Continuing Education

The Army Continuing Education System (ACES) provides educational opportunities to Soldiers, adult family members, and civilian employees. The education center staff's goal is to vigorously promote lifelong learning opportunities for Soldiers and all members of the community. The education centers offer services such as guidance counseling, post-secondary college programs, testing, Functional Academic Skills Training (FAST) and Army Learning Centers (ALCs).


Education centers in the USAG Bavaria area (Tower & Rose Barracks) offer a wide variety of degree programs through traditional classes and distance education. The colleges that operate in the area are Central Texas College (CTC), University of Maryland University College (UMUC), and University of Oklahoma (OU). For information on their programs and the schools visit the websites shown below.

Schools Web Sites:

· University of Maryland University College
· Central Texas College
· University of Oklahoma 

Community members may also choose from many online universities. Always consult a guidance counselor before committing funds to any school so that the school's accreditation can be assessed. Soldiers will access their tuition assistance (TA) benefits by registering for classes through the portal. All colleges listed at the GoArmyEd portal are regionally or nationally accredited and recognized by the Department of Education. Most schools listed in the GoArmyEd portal typically award college credit for military experience and occupational specialties in accordance with established guidelines in the American Council on Education (ACE) guide.

Testing Services

CLEP and DANTES standardized tests may also be accepted for college credit. These tests are available at the National Testing Center (NTC) that was recently activated at the Rose Barracks Education Center. Besides CLEP and DANTES tests the NTC also offers a wide range of academic and certification exams. Army Personnel Tests such as language proficiency and aptitude exams, the Armed Forces Classification Test, just to name a few are also available at our testing sections. Additionally, the ASE and GED battery is offered at our testing sections as well as proctoring services for students involved in distance education programs.

Army Learning Centers

Each education center has an Army Learning Center. These computer labs are available for college work and military requirements such as Army Correspondence Courses, Structured Development Courses and more.
