Online college scholarship programs for military spouses

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -  Andrew Jackson University, an accredited university whose courses are accessible online, announced that it is offering partial scholarships to spouses of serving military personnel.  Military spouses automatically qualify for the scholarships, which provide for a 25% reduction in the university's tuition rates.  The University has created a special web site to provide scholarship details to military spouses at

"Many of the wives and husbands of those serving in the armed forces, especially those serving overseas, welcome the chance to improve their own career prospects by attaining advanced formal education," says Keith Schmoke, Andrew Jackson University's special projects director and himself a former Army reservist.  "But because of costs and rigid class attendance requirements, too many of these spouses never have the chance to earn a degree or even take classes that would help them succeed," Schmoke added.

The university's director of education, Dr. Larry Flegle, agrees with Keith Schmoke.  "We have the ideal environment for those who wish to gain academic credentials, even those with children," comments Dr. Flegle.  "For example, we have an MBA student with three children, two of them less than three years old, studying online whenever she finds the chance.  This student wants to run her own business and feels that our MBA with a concentration in entrepreneurship is the best way to prepare.  And of course we agree," states Flegle.

Andrew Jackson University is located in Birmingham, Alabama, but has students all across the globe thanks to online technology.  Associate's, bachelor's and master's degrees are offered in criminal justice, public administration, business and communication.  The school also has a series of certificate programs, many of which are ideal for stay at home spouses.  All courses are available online 24/7 and classes are self-paced, meaning that the student chooses when to study based on their own schedule.

Founded in 1994, Andrew Jackson University is a member of SOC and is approved by DANTES and VA.  Accreditation is awarded by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council, which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as an authorized accrediting agency.  The University has two specialized schools, the Brian Tracy College of Business and Entrepreneurship , and the Jeffrey D. Rubenstein College of Criminal Justice and Public Safety .  Information on the Military Spouse Scholarships can be obtained by calling 800-429-9300, ext. 1, or e-mailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
