By Marty McKee
Editor, In Military Education
Making the transition from military life to university life can be difficult for veterans.
Programs have been proposed and/or implemented over the years to help make the transition go smoothly. One tool used by some universities, including American Military University, to great success bears the intimidating name of Fidelis Learning Relationship Management System.
But for simplicity’s sake, let’s just call it LRM. Gunnar Counselman tells us all about it in his article on the Military Advanced Education blog, “Focus on the Personal.”
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.
