The Benefits of College Study while You Are in the Military

Years ago, military personnel wasted a lot of idle time playing cards or reading magazines in the barracks. Now that has all changed. More men and women in uniform are using their time to pursue college degrees online.

According to “Online Degrees Offer Soldiers More Opportunities,” a recent article by Natasha Bright in TRCB.com, more and more military personnel are discovering the efficiency of studying online. According to Bright, “Soldiers have always reported that one of the greatest challenges they face in serving is the rigorous schedules that they are forced to work on. For this reason, many soldiers have commonly felt that schooling was simply not a feasible option. More and more that is simply becoming untrue as colleges open up more flexible and unique education programs to allow students to earn their degree online.”

When you stop to think about it, it makes a lot of sense to take college courses online while you are still in uniform. Here are some key reasons . . .
  • You can probably obtain financial assistance from the government. The Post-911 GI Bill is designed to help pay educational costs – even the cost of housing and textbooks – for soldiers, veterans, and reservists. To learn more, visit The Department of Veterans Affairs GI Bill Website or call 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551). According to some estimates, as many as 385,000 active military personnel and veterans are already taking advantage of this bill.
  • You can take online courses anywhere. Are you in Afghanistan? Germany? Fort Dix? It doesn’t matter. And your coursework will not be interrupted if you are transferred.
  • The classroom is open 24/7. That’s ideal for military personnel who work odd and off hours.
  • The courses you take can make it easier for you transition into civilian life. “Wide reports suggest that soldiers who focus on their education and earn an advanced degree while in the service may have an easier time transitioning into civilian life after they leave the service,” Bright reports.
  • A growing number of colleges are granting credit for online coursework. Straighterline, offers online college courses that are accepted at many U.S. colleges.

In summary . . .

Online study makes a lot of sense for military personnel and vets. Financial aid is available, and the number of online college course offerings is growing quickly. If you qualify, it’s an opportunity you shouldn’t ignore.

    4) Thoughts that arise from the blending of original self-knowledge and other forms of consequent experiential knowledge provide the motives to take action to realize them in external tangible form. This is why the best of human thinking begins and ends with how to manifest one’s uniqueness in the world. When you realize the beautiful vision of your heart, of your true Self, you will rise to manifest the greatness of your dominant thoughts in all of your actions……….

    5) Original knowledge, once uncovered, is the clear awareness of your controlling desires and the content of your dominant aspirations. Consequent knowledge helps us identify the proper ways our dominant aspirations can be fanned into the flames of enthusiasm, ambition and accomplishment. It can also help us take the necessary steps to overcome the petty and self-limiting desires that yield the incomplete and unsatisfying outcomes we often experience throughout our lives…………

    2) Creativity is a blessing from nature but we can develop it by careful planning through education. This is all the more important in a country like USA where we accept even the mediocre to contribute their best and create something new.
    Hence, it is necessary that parents and teachers provide healthy conditions at home and the school. This would enable children to express themselves and contribute something new for the society, which may be termed as creativity……….

  6. Achieve your goal

    It is not only convenient to get anything from a math degree to a psychology degree online, but it can also be less costly than traditional college or universities, too. Often, since online schools do not have a physical campus, they do not need to charge as much for attendance. Things like housing, campus building upkeep and cafeteria facilities are not typically offered, and so the cost of attendance is just tuition and books. In addition, most online education programs offer some form of financial aid. And the cost of online degrees earned from an accredited institution can often be offset with federal financial aid as well…………..

    Getting quality teaching with an online degree means that you need to research each institute carefully. Talk to other students, if possible. Look at several schools offering both traditional programs and online degree programs. It doesn?t hurt to check out class size either.
