Making the decision to go to college after leaving the military can be difficult. There are vast differences between enlisted life and college life. Going from the structure of day to day military life with your comrades to one filled with classrooms of young adults can be difficult to imagine. With your years of experience in the armed forces it’s important to evaluate what you are looking for in a school and degree program. You may find yourself more comfortable in a distance or online learning environment than one where you commute to campus on a daily basis.
Arizona State University honors service men and women who serve our country by offering the Military Active Duty and Reservist Commitment Scholarship, a program which provides increased access to quality education. With the scholarship, active and reservist military seeking an undergraduate degree will no longer have any out-of-pocket tuition expenses, but will be responsible for any class/mandatory fees not covered by their TA/MRS.
