Military friendly schools for spouses


Hi, I have been attending Saint Leo University for about 3 1/2 years and love it. Most of everyone who attends is in the military or a spouse. All of the classes are online, and they have a flat rate for military/spouses of 750.00 per class. It is a private college, so it's a little more expensive. However, with the cost per credit increasing, at least military have a flat rate. /WorkArea/threadeddisc/emoticons/biggrin.png

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.


I also went through Penn Foster and loved it as did 3 of my cousins.... Its super easy to get through your classes and very conveinient. There is no certain time you have to get through a semester, you work when its good for you..Which makes it awesome when youre busy with family and taking care of your hubby and home and chores and bills and all that good stuff! I made my own goals to motivate myself and finished a 3 yr program in 2... Best of luck!

Hello, I'm trying to find out if anyone knows and can help me with finding schools online that are military friendly. I'm am desperately trying to get back into school to get my degree.  Of course I need able to move about when it's time for my husband to relocate. I've had done plenty of google searches but I  haven't came up with anything that's giving me an 100% guarantee that it's real. I thought I finally found one when I saw US career  institute on this website but after doing a google search I've seen several negative comments. If someone can help please let me know.

You should check into the Minnesota School of Business. They have tons of online options and I just started attending online classes and I get charged $252 a credit compared to $418 as a military spouse scholarship! They are very understanding, I've been to a few other state universities in Minnesota, and this is by-far the better school.


I'm not sure how far away you can be or anything of that sort, but they are worth looking into.

SOC is a great place to start, because all those colleges have agreed to take transfer credits from each other.  A lot depends on where you're at with your degree and what you plan your degree to be.  If you're just starting out or still working on your GenEd requirements, you could get your AA degree at a SOC school (usually all those required undergraduate courses) then transfer it into a Bachelor program (all the courses you really want to take) at another school.  That's what I'm going to do through Coastline, because they have free books for spouses as well.

I would recommend American Military University (AMU). The are fully accreditted and very easy to work with when getting everything set up. I learned about the University through my husbands chain of command. I was interested and decided to research them, I turned to MyCAA for help. MyCAA has them listed within the schools that they deal with. I graduated from AMU with my AA in Business Admin in Feb of this year and decided to go back and obtain my Bachelors Degree. I am able to work on assignments when I have the time through out the week. You are able to choose between 8 week classes or 16 week classes, and you are not requried to take a certain amount of classes, you can choose to take 1 at a time or 4 if you want. I personally take 2 eight week classes then take another 2 eight week classes, filing my semester with 4 classes over all, making me a full time student. Check out their site, ask questions, they are like I said very helpful. Best of luck.

Meditec is a complete, career-focused online training solution. Our certificate programs will help you gain valuable skills in the medical and legal fields.

If you are MyCAA eligible, MyCAA will pay for up to $4,000 in educational expenses. No out of pocket cost to you.

Who is eligible for MyCAA Financial Assistance? :

Who is NOT eligible:

* Spouses married to service members in pay grades: E-6 and above; W-3 and above; and O-3 and above

I'm in Korea and it's REALLY hard finding college here. The ED center won't cover me with the G.I. Bill (we're still low rank and not in long enough or something like that) BUT I started in Sept with Penn Foster and I love it, I've already completed 3 or 4 classes and it's CHEAP ($1000) for one semester (including all the books and what not) So I got a job and I paid for it with our extra money. They will follow you when you PCS and they have always been helpful. AND they are BBB approved.

I was extremely cautious with it all but decided to try it out anyways.

Good luck!

I was wondering if any one has had a good experience with  Coastline Community College? Thinking about enrolling. 

Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) are supposed to work with you.  There are a lot of schools on the list- I didn't know mine was until after I started! 
Check out:

Grantham University is military oriented and Spouses get the same rate as the military. It's all online and books are included in cost. 8 week courses, but you can finish them early if you're feeling froggy! They offer associates, bachelors and masters. Business and IT/Computer degrees are very portable when the need to PCS arises.

or email me if you'd like more info.


I have a bit of information about MyCAA and Meditec. The Department of Defense's (DoD) Military Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) provides eligible spouses with up to $4,000 in financial assistance towards their education at ZERO cost to you.

Who Is Eligible for MyCAA?
Spouse of an active duty Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine service member, or activated Reserve member in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, or O1-O2. Spouses of Guard and Reserve members must be able to start and complete their courses while their sponsor is on Title 10 orders.

Meditec’s online medical, business, and legal training programs are simply the best and most cost effective. Unlike most online schools, Meditec brings 40+ years of applied teaching and business experience to the table. That experience is reflected in the training material. They also have an A+ rating with the BBB.

Training courses are available online, and they are all self-paced. They include EVERYTHING you need to know.
