Academic and Benefits Counseling

Factors such as program flexibility, having a military friendly atmosphere, acceptance of transfer credits and credit-by-exam, and a willingness to accept military training all come into play with a civilian education plan.
We can help you use your benefits to ensure that you meet your education goals as easily as possible. We will show you what benefits are available to you, as well as how to apply for them. We will show how to combine certain benefits and which programs should be used for different levels of education.
