You Serve Others ... Now Serve Your Future!

As a first responder, you’ve dedicated your life to serving your community. Now it’s time to serve your future. It’s time to take the next step to improve your life and career. It’s time to pursue a college degree.

At Grantham University, we make it easy for emergency responders – including U.S. federal, state and local law enforcement personnel, firefighters and paramedics – to pursue a college education and earn a degree.

The Online College Experience

If you’re looking at an online degree program, you’ve probably got a lot of questions: Why should I pick an online college versus a physical campus? How long will it take to get my degree? What is online college like? How does online college work?

Depending on your chosen degree or program, you may be able to finish in as little as 2 years. As an online college, we’re not concerned about paying for building upkeep or expansion, and you don’t have to worry about the costs of transportation or parking, so we tend to be more affordable than a physical campus. We continually refresh the content of our online programs to provide a current, professionally relevant education. While you work at your pace, you have access to one-on-one attention when you need it. Our instructors are armed with industry-relevant experience, instilling programs with the skills and methodologies you’ll need to compete in today’s dynamic workforce.
