Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAP)

Army National Guard: Active Duty Under Title 10 USC or Title 32 USC (Full-Time National Guard Duty)

Benefit Fact Sheet


The Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAP) is a partnership between the Army Recruiting Command and over 1,900 participating colleges to mutually advance the goals of lifelong learning and postsecondary education for Future Soldiers. On January 1, 2014, the United States Army Recruiting Command assumed ConAP program management and now serves as liaison between Army Recruiters, Education Services Specialists, ConAP colleges, Army education centers and the higher education community.

ConAP goals are to increase enlistment of college-capable active duty and Reserve Soldiers; increase the number of Army Soldiers, Veterans, and Reserve Soldiers enrolled in college; and increase the use of GI Bill education benefits.

Key program features:

  • Creates a plan for Future Soldiers to attend college after enlistment and use Army education benefits

  • Links Future Soldiers to a participating post-secondary institution of higher learning at time of enlistment

  • Assists colleges in identifying future veterans interested in attending their institution

  • Provides colleges that have a current Department of Defense (DOD) Voluntary Education Partnership memorandum of Understanding (MOU) participation in ConAP. Participating colleges must be accredited and recognized by one of the accrediting organizations of the United States Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

  • Automates the process of establishing prospective relationships between Future Soldiers in the U.S. Army and Army Reserve and over 1,900 colleges nationwide through an Electronic ConAP College Referral and Intent to Enroll Form.


National Guard Soldiers are not eligible for ConAP; the program is intended for new enlistees in the Regular Army and the Army Reserve.
