Education for Military Spouses and Children
As a military dependent, you know what it’s like to adapt and live according to a constantly changing schedule. You may have to manage a household on your own, relocate often, or assume additional familial responsibilities while a parent or spouse is away. Life as a military spouse or child may be unpredictable at times. If you want to prepare for a career that offers nationwide job opportunities and financial stability, you need to think about your education.
In any case, enrolling in a traditional ground school may be unrealistic for military spouses and children due to time and location constraints. But online education is the perfect alternative to earn a degree and advance your career on your own terms, without neglecting other responsibilities. Learning online will allow you to earn a college degree while on the go, working full time, and taking care of your children or younger siblings.
Under the Post-9/11 GI Bill, military spouses and children may be eligible to receive financial assistance to enroll in school. For more specific information on eligibility and terms, see our page dedicated to Post-9/11 GI Bill Transfer. Additionally, many military friendly schools will offer a discounted tuition rate to military dependents. Our school comparison tool is an excellent resource to help you determine which schools are military friendly and to select the particular institution that best meets your needs.
