Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 6, 2006
Drexel University Online, winner of the 2006 21st Century Best Practice Award for Distance Learning from the U.S. Distance Learning Association, will offer a 10 to 30 percent tuition reduction on online graduate, undergraduate and certificate programs to all U.S. military members, their spouses and immediate family.
This special tuition reduction will help military members acquire the important education they need to transition their service careers to civilian life. Available to spouses and immediate family as well, this tuition reduction allows military families to achieve an affordable online education, while working toward increasing their family's overall earning potential.
Drexel University Online's convenient format is especially suitable to the transient military lifestyle. Students enjoy 24/7 online access to class materials, group discussion and faculty. In addition, accelerated 10-week terms make it possible to complete certain programs in a shorter amount of time.
"We are honored to give something back to the service members who defend our country, while at the same time recognize the contributions and sacrifices made by their families," said Dr. Kenneth Hartman, academic director of Drexel University Online and formerly a commissioned Army officer.
