Armed Forces Day is tomorrow, May 18, 2013, and we would like to thank and honor all military personnel, especially those who are our students. This holiday was first observed in 1950 and is now celebrated annually on the third Saturday of every May to recognize and honor the five military branches: the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard.
At Argosy University, Online Programs, we want to recognize the commitment of those who serve. Here are three ways in which we currently serve those of our students who are affiliated with the military.
1. Experience in Working with Military Students
We ensure that all military students and spouses have a team of dedicated admissions, financial aid and advising representatives focused on meeting your needs as a military student. Argosy University is a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC). We have also been recognized by GI Jobs as a Military-Friendly School (http://www.militaryfriendlyschools.com/), an honor reserved for only 15% of schools nationwide.
2. University Credit for Your Military Experience
We'd like to recognize your extensive military training and experience. Once you submit the paperwork, we’ll review your experience and training to determine your eligibility for credit toward your academic program. This transfer of credit could help you to cut expenses and graduate in less time.
