Irvine, California (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
In its continuing effort to give back to military service members who serve our nation with such distinction, California Southern University has announced the availability of discounted group rates for the spouses and children of military personnel. Effective immediately, spouses and children of both active-duty military service members and veterans are eligible for a 10-percent tuition discount for CalSouthern’s online degree programs in business, psychology, and law.
“CalSouthern is honored to provide active-duty military and veterans with all the personalized support they need to achieve their educational goals, from helping them learn how to best utilize their military education benefits to working with them to develop a degree program that meets their needs, or providing them with the tools they need to succeed in their coursework,” says University President Dr. Caroll Ryan. “However, we recognize that it’s not just the service members who make sacrifices for our country. Their loved ones do, as well. So we wanted to extend our efforts on behalf of the military to benefit their families, too. We hope that many will take advantage of this program to pursue their dreams.”
CalSouthern officially launched its military program in February 2011 and—just six months later—was awarded the designation of “Military-Friendly School” for 2012 for prioritizing the recruitment of students with military experience and offering special programs and services to those who have served. The 2012 list of Military-Friendly Schools was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 8,000 schools nationwide.
