Military service members and their families have rendered outstanding services to our nation. Often they have offered the ultimate sacrifice. In gratitude and out of a sense of justice, opportunities have now been created for active service members, veterans and their families to earn college degrees at a lower cost and with greater convenience online.
This list selects 30 of the Top Military Friendly Online Schools. Our selections consider cost and convenience as well as inclusiveness and support of both military personnel and their families. Each school on our list is widely recognized as seeking to provide the best possible online educational opportunities and support for military students and their families.
According to researcher, Jared Goff, “As service men and women seek to prepare for life after active duty and veterans seek to establish civilian careers, a college education is often key to a successful transition. Affordable and accessible online schools that support and offer opportunities to entire military families are becoming more prevalent. Online education at military friendly schools provides high quality college instruction that can meet the needs of military personnel and their families often in a more cost-effective and convenient way than traditional on-campus degree programs.”
