3 major benefits for Grantham military studentsMore than 67 years ago, a veteran founded Grantham University (then known as the Grantham Radio License School) with the express intent to transform the lives of transitioning military service members through education. Today, Grantham is still one of the few schools specializing in distance learning (online) for those affiliated with the military (active-duty service members, veterans, military spouses and dependents).

Year after year, the university is ranked among the country’s top military-friendly schools, including its recent appearance on 2018 noteworthy lists, such as Military Times Best Colleges, VIQTORY’s Military Friendly Top 10 Schools (gold level), and Military Advanced Education & Transition’s Top Colleges and Universities.

Following are three major benefits of earning your degree at Grantham, while or after you serve.

Military-friendly Education

Every service member and his/her family deserves the opportunity to achieve their educational goals, and we know the typical brick-and-mortar school experience isn’t going to work for most. That’s why we’ve designed more than 50 targeted online programs, so you can earn an undergraduate or graduate degree or certificate  on your schedule, wherever you are in the world. As you pursue a successful civilian career, we provide comprehensive resources to help you, including our series of military-to-civilian transition guides, a dedicated career services department, 24/7 online tutoring, a veteran support team and more.

Focus on Affordability

It is our honor and privilege to serve those who serve, and we are committed to making our high-quality education as affordable as possible. From scholarships, to a reduced tuition rate for the military, first responders, and civil servants, Grantham strives to help military students make the most of their education benefits. As an accredited university, Grantham is approved by all branches of the military for tuition assistance. Our Student Financial Services team can help veterans maximize their Veterans Administration benefits, assist active duty and reserve personnel in exploring Tuition Assistance benefits, and help military family members research financial aid options.

College Credit for Military Training & Experience

Grantham understands you’ve worked tirelessly, made sacrifices and gained invaluable, real-life experiences. That means something. We award credit for ACE-approved military and professional training, and will review other prior learning and experience for potential credit, as well. To find out how much college credit you may have already earned, you can order your military transcripts using the appropriate service link (here for veterans and here for active duty).
