We go the extra mile to give active U.S. military and veterans the support (academic, financial, logistical) they may need to earn a certificate or degree, and to advance their careers in the military or following service.

You are a military student if you are a veteran or active duty member of the U.S. armed forces. We also support military spouses/dependents and DoD civilians.
