How To Pay for Your Online CPE Course

Secure Your Spot in a Course

To officially register for the course you need, we require payment or an official promise of payment for the full course fee at the time of registration.

  • Payments can be received by Visa or MasterCard or by checks made payable to George Mason University.
  • Official promise of payments include an invoice with a P.O. number, as well as an SF 182 (Standard Form 182:  Request, Authorization, Agreement, and Certification for Training). 

If your employer has agreed to pay for your course, you need to follow your company's guidelines for payment or reimbursement. Please note that we will provide an invoice to an organization, however, you're ultimately responsible for any balance due.

If you have any questions or need additional information contact us at or click on the request information button below.

As CPE courses do not offer college credit, they're not available for traditional Veterans' educational assistance benefits. However, if you qualify for vocational rehabilitation and employment benefits through the VA, you may be eligible to use those benefits. Contact 703-993-2109 for more information and qualification guidelines.

To pay using Army CA (sometimes referred to as COOL) funds, you need to request a course quote from CPE at and submit a funding request through ArmyIgnitED. Once approved, the Army will contact CPE within three to seven days of the course start date to pay for the soldier.

To pay using MyCAA, the military spouse needs to sign up for the course on the CPE website and select "other" or "MyCAA" as the form of payment. The MyCAA letter of approval will serve as the form of payment and can be submitted when the program coordinator contacts them.

We recognize you may suddenly not be able to attend the course you hoped to. If this happens, you have two options.

Refund Your Money

Payments will be refunded to the person or company that issued the original check to George Mason University.
