Does any one know which online colleges are military friendly?  Which ones the spouse education program will pay for?

I've "heard" Kaplan is very military friendly and know a few people who are going through them and are very happy. Whatever you do, don't go for Westwood College online. They are absolutely awful. Hubby got screwed over by them, as have 3 of our friends. Sad part? The Navy recommends (or did) them and claims they are military friendly.

what about the university of pheonix,  i had been going through them before my financial aide was cut off so the people i was borrowing from could sue themselves (weird).  that was a little over a year ago, and i heard then that they wern't military friendly, but i can always hope they changed :P

I know as of last year U of Phoenix was being sued and was no longer being "recommended". I don't know what for though. Good, legit online colleges that aren't 5 times the normal college price are really tough to find.

i think that is the same for all colleges that do any type of distance learning, not just online :P  i know adams state university out of alamosa colorado, their distance learning was shut down after a law suit.

most colleges in communities offer distance learning classes. I would start there. I know where i am most of my basic courses needed to apply for my program are offered online. I don't have to leave my home if i didn't want to but i like being IN a classroom.

Please be sure to check if the university is accredited....I've seen folks pay $$ to get a degree at an unaccredited school, so their diploma is worthless

be careful with MyCAA because if your DH is E-6 you won't qualify...but I would reccommend Coastline Community my DH has taken 2 classes with them and they are really easy and very military friendly ^_^ 

 

I am thinking about getting a degree from them whenever my kids are in school :-)  or rather I would hope to get a degree from them when we can afford it ^_^
