However, by going to school online students can study from anywhere in the world. So if they have to suddenly move or work in remote locations, they can still continue their education.
Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) May 23, 2008
To celebrate the men and women who have served or are currently serving in the U.S. military, EarnMyDegree.com, a web resource of EducationDynamics, has launched a Guide to Online Education for the Military at http://www.earnmydegree.com/online-education/military/. The guide features special rates from ten online colleges so active duty members, guards, reservists, veterans and immediate family members of military personnel can receive an online education.
According to the National Center for Veterans and Analysis and Statistics, nearly 24 million people in the U.S. are military veterans and the Department of Defense lists the active military personnel at 1.4 million. The Guide to Online Education for the Military is a one-stop resource, listing the programs and financial aid options specifically tailored for the armed forces. Many of the accredited online schools listed at http://www.earnmydegree.com/online-education/military/ offer tuition discounts, financial aid assistance and accept military training for college credit.
"Servicemen and women and their families sacrifice so much for our country and often have to put their college education on hold," said Terrence Thomas with EarnMyDegree.com, which connects prospective students with online learning programs. "However, by going to school online students can study from anywhere in the world. So if they have to suddenly move or work in remote locations, they can still continue their education."
Through online education opportunities on EarnMyDegree.com, veterans can find colleges that accept the GI Bill, which provides federal aid to help veterans return to life as a civilian. While most veterans enlist in the military to take advantage of the education benefits, many do not use all of the financial aid available. According to a Washington Post interview with Ray Kelley of AMVETS, more than half of the military veterans use some part of their education benefits and only 8% use all of the benefit.
In addition to listing special rates and programs for members of the military, veterans and their immediate family, the Guide to Online Education for the Military also has a Military Education FAQ section, which covers:
- How to use tuition assistance programs.
- What degree is the best fit with your military background?
- How to determine the next steps to getting an online degree.
