Aurora, CO (PRWEB) September 15, 2009
G.I. Jobs magazine has named American Sentinel University as a 2010 Military Friendly School, an honor that ranks the school in the top 15 percent of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.
"There are eight million military members and veterans seeking a school," said Rich McCormack, publisher of G.I. Jobs. "American Sentinel is one of the schools that are committed to initiating and improving policies, efforts and results to recruit and retain military and veteran students."
Military students constitute more than a third of American Sentinel University's total enrollment. The school's online format, no set class times, and low tuition rates provide unlimited flexibility, global delivery and affordability. The university is committed to meeting the special needs of military students, helping them to succeed in advancing their education and enhancing both their professional and civic lives.
"American Sentinel has made specific efforts to provide active and retired U.S. service members with relevant curriculum based on real-world work environments, plus military-friendly transfer credit policies and military spouse discounts," said Paul Capicik, Vice President, Military Programs at American Sentinel University.
Thanks to American Sentinel's tradition of offering one of the lowest tuition rates available for online degree programs, the university does not need to participate in the Department of Veterans Affairs' new Yellow Ribbon program for the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill program.
"We are proud of our commitment to making first-rate education available and affordable to U.S. service members," Capicik said. "By saving money for both the students and the government, American Sentinel has set itself apart from those schools that charge more. Our added military scholarship reduces the student's cost even further."
