This is the seventh consecutive year Grantham has received this honor. 

MAE14Kansas City, Mo. — December 16, 2013 — Since its inception 62 years ago, Grantham University has always strived to help service members and veterans pursue and achieve their educational goals. For the seventh consecutive year, the University has been recognized for its efforts byMilitary Advanced Education (MAE) and named a top university in its “2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities.” This year, a record number of schools participated in the annual survey, which ranks schools in four key areas: military culture, support services, financial and flexibility.

“As a World War II veteran, Grantham’s founder understood the importance of service members pursuing their education in order to have a successful career beyond the military,” said Dr. Jeffrey Cropsey, vice president for strategic initiatives and external relations. “To this day, we continue to believe in the life changing power of education for the brave men and women serving in our country’s armed forces.”

In addition to offering scholarships for service members and veterans, Grantham has developed the award-winning Swaddling Support Services® (SSS®) model specifically to help nontraditional students thrive in the online learning environment. Through SSS®, students receive a variety of services including one-on-one support from a student advisor throughout the duration of the degree program to answer questions and provide motivation and encouragement. Additionally, all Grantham faculty are trained in military culture and adult learning strategies to ensure there is no disconnect between teacher and student.

Grantham University is one of the oldest accredited, private, degree-granting distance education universities in the United States. The University specializes in delivering flexible, affordable, accredited online degrees to military service members, veterans and working adults around the world.
