For-Profit Colleges: An Attractive Choice for Career-Minded Veterans
More than a million veterans have used their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to cover education costs. Many of those men and women chose to attend for-profit institutions of higher learning.
But why? What do for-profit schools, such as American Military University (AMU), offer veterans that traditional state schools don’t?
John Aldrich, AMU’s associate vice president for military and community college outreach, has some answers in the following article posted at the RallyPoint website:
We Are Military- And Veteran-Friendly
American Military University (AMU) has service members and veterans studying with us around the world, supported by a vast array of staff and faculty who are also veterans. As a result, AMU truly understands the specific needs of our country’s veterans. To support you, we have dedicated advisors skilled at addressing the questions veterans face when enrolling in school, such as how to utilize benefits for financial aid. And, if you are a veteran with a disability, you are not alone. AMU has staff trained at empowering our disabled veteran students to succeed.
