Baker strives to help our service people gain new educational advantages and the discount is the most important tool that we use
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) February 16, 2009
Baker University is working hard to support America's military personnel. The university has a rich history of supporting the causes of freedom and community needs for higher education, from its early beginnings when Abraham Lincoln donated $100 to help construct the main campus. That tradition continues today.
Baker's School of Professional and Graduate Studies proudly announces it now offers a reduction of up to 50 percent in tuition rates for all active duty military and a 25 percent tuition discount for military spouses, plus a waiver of the $45 application fee.
"Baker strives to help our service people gain new educational advantages and the discount is the most important tool that we use," said Marvin Hunt, dean of Baker's School of Professional and Graduate Studies.
At Baker, students receive college credit for military training and specialized schools attended. Baker's Corporate Education Specialists travel to surrounding military bases to visit with prospective students and introduce them to the advantages of Baker's degree programs. If students are deployed, Student Services works with them to withdraw and re-enter the program, greatly simplifying the process.
Baker University offers degrees in business, education, nursing, liberal arts and conflict management and dispute resolution. The School of Professional and Graduate Studies degree programs are designed for adults with different levels of experience, from new students who have never attended a university to those interested in earning a graduate degree or changing their careers. Baker also offers their prestigious online MBA program ranked among the top 10 online MBA programs by CoursePal. At School of Professional and Graduate Studies, face-to-face courses are offered at convenient times and locations. All on-ground classes are taught in the evening and because, of the accelerated format, most degree programs can be completed in about two years.
Baker University is recognized as the top private university in Kansas and as a top Midwest school by the Princeton Review. Over 85 percent of students who begin their studies at Baker University graduate with a degree. In classrooms with a 13-to-1 student ratio, students take an active role in their education through stimulating classroom interaction and study groups.
