Supporting Those Who Support our Troops

We respect and serve the most important support for our active duty and veteran students. We understand the frequent period of relocation, disruption and financial challenges that comes with military community. That is why are committed to making sure you have full support and access to your educational need.

Seeing 3 friends/co-workers graduate last May with their MBA's got me thinking. All 3 are married with young children and have jobs at least as demanding as mine. I am single with grown children. What was my excuse?
