Education After the Military

What do you want to do after military service?

Convenience and flexibility are two good reasons that military folks choose FORTIS College Online.  Whether you're active duty, retired, National Guard or a military spouse, you will find FORTIS has programs to fit your lifestyle and career goals.

We have a dedicated team in place to support our military students. From admissions to financial aid to Career Services, FORTIS understands your needs as a member of the military community.

Flexibility

  • Military students' lives can change pretty quickly. FORTIS understands this and is prepared to help you. If you've been taking an on-campus program and then get redeployed, the FORTIS programs allow flexibility to take time off or adjust.
  • Because we offer both online- and on-campus learning options, you have choices in how you start and complete your education.
  • Our admissions representatives understand the importance of your service and will work with you to identify areas where your experience can count towards your degree.
  • Financial aid is available to those who qualify. Our financial aid representatives will work with you, your family, and your CO or military liaison to put together the best package for your situation and goals.

Support

  • Three tiers of support for our military students: academic representatives, military representatives, and faculty.
  • Your military representative is specially selected and dedicated to the situations faced by military students. Should you or a family member deploy, for instance, your military representatives can help you with postponing your studies or continuing them overseas, or provide you with information about transfer credits.
  • Your academic representative is there to help you with any issue you might have related to your studies or life at Fortis. If you bring them a problem outside their expertise, they can help you identify the right place to go to get help.
  • Career Services understands the work experience of our military students and will work with you to identify opportunities that only you may be uniquely qualified to take advantage of.

The financial aid picture for military, ex-military, and military families is a little different—and sometimes more complex—than it is for non-military students. Financial Aid representatives at FORTIS are experienced with these situations and are available to assist you.

Always here for you.

  • Representatives on staff to give you all the information you need about your program's cost and options for financing your education
  • Financial aid offices on every campus so students can continue to find and act on important information they need to continue on their path to success
  • The flexibility you need from representatives, representatives, instructors, and staff, who can work with you if it becomes difficult to keep up your studies or if you need time off.

Enrolling at Fortis is simple, quick, and easy.

  • Talk to an admissions representative today, at your convenience. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff can help you select the right program and program options for you.
  • Once you've decided on your program, talk to a financial aid representative about the available programs available to finance your education.
  • Ask your representative for details on our military-friendly tuition for FORTIS College Online.
  • Significant and various forms of VA (GI Bill) benefits are available to the extended military community. These can apply to members both while in the service and as veterans. Some of the earned benefits may also be available to member dependents.

At Fortis College Online, we recognize and reward the sacrifices our military members make. We also recognize the sacrifices made by these members' spouses. In return, we offer several benefits for military spouses to take advantage of when pursuing their education with us!

Fortis College Online is a participating federal financial aid school. Any awards received by military spouses can be combined with other military benefits listed below for the maximum amount of assistance.

For spouses of active-duty members, Active Guard Reserves, and reserve and guard members called to active duty, Fortis College Online offers a military scholarship program. This scholarship includes reduced tuition rates and waived graduation fees, and covers the cost of books, software and shipping costs. In addition, all military spouses qualify for no-cost transfer credit evaluation.

Fortis College Online is also a participant in the Military OneSource Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts program, or MyCAA. This program from the Department of Defense offers qualifying military spouses up to $4,000 in tuition benefits. MyCAA also offers employment readiness counseling and career services assistance.
