You may already know that professional colleges and universities are well-suited for students with active lifestyles, including parents and individuals with full-time jobs. What you may not know, however, is that many professional colleges have specific programs and services that benefit members of our military, their spouses, and veterans. Here are a few of the top ways that professional colleges and universities serve members of our military:
- Schools such as Harrison College have specific policies in place that minimize penalties to service members who must withdraw from classes upon being called to active duty.
- Herzing University, which has been listed as a top military-friendly school, is one of many professional universities that offer credit for military training, experience, and testing.
- Many schools, such as Capella University, have experienced teams dedicated to supporting members of the military and their families. (Capella even has specialized military social networks!)
- Career colleges often provide grants, scholarships, and discounts off tuition to veterans, current members of the military, and even military spouses.
