Active Duty Military

Active duty military students may be eligible to participate in the Military Tuition Assistant (TA) program as a source of financial aid to help fund eligible educational expenses. The TA program is a unique, distinct source of financial aid available to eligible servicemembers. TA is a first payer as it relates to paying for eligible educational expenses. Each of the service branches and the U.S. Coast Guard offer financial assistance for voluntary, off-duty education programs in support of service members’ personal and professional goals. The program is open to officers, warrant officers and enlisted active-duty service personnel. Each military branch has its own TA application form and procedures, which you can learn more about by clicking on the appropriate link for your service branch: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force. Service members need to first check with and seek approval from their Education Services Officer (ESO), military counselor, or Service prior to enrollment.

Method of Instruction

Our programs are accelerated, focused and career oriented with a goal to prepare you for employment. To achieve this we have designed a no-nonsense curriculum that is structured for students to vertically build their knowledge as opposed to a more traditional horizontal buildup of knowledge. Learn more about our curricular design.

Focused

Similar topic courses are grouped into modules and taken simultaneously, reducing the need to juggle multiple topics. Focus on a primary topic at a time each term.

Employable After First 8 Months

Career oriented courses taken early in the program with a goal of making students employable after the first 8 months of the program.

Hands-On and Project Work

A significant portion of the program is delivered through project based coursework in order to provide an equal balance between lecture and lab courses. Work in a variety of our Instructional Labs.

School/Work Balance

Our college is designed with working adults in mind. Many military students work during the daytime and don’t have the time to worry about books, materials, scheduling and other student headaches. We try to simplify all this and adapt to the times by providing a better School/Work balance.

Simplified Course Scheduling

We take care of scheduling for you. Due to the complexity in the prerequisites of our courses, we will schedule all your courses from start to finish so that you don’t need to worry about it. We also try to accommodate leaves that military students need to make from time to time and rework your schedules accordingly.

Books & Equipment Included

All books, equipment, and lab materials are provided to students in the beginning of the course.

Evening Schedules

Courses are offered in the evening times. Work during the day and then study at night.
