The amount of time a military member is stationed in an area can be from two years to four or even more in some cases. Unfortunately this lifestyle doesn’t work for someone that is enrolled in college and attending class on campus; this situation would be easier for someone attending online classes.
Ever wonder what options and resources you have as a military spouse related to going back to school? Our spouses have the G.I. Bill and or the Post 911 G.I. Bill for their tuition assistance but what about aids for us spouses? They now have the option to transfer their G.I. Bill to their families, but when you are in my situation- my husband used all of his G.I. Bill on his Bachelors degree. I’m super proud of him for getting his degree and (lemme brag on my man) he graduated with honors! G.I. Bill well spent! But no G.I. Bill benefits for Candy. What’s a girl to do?
There are grants or loans available to me when I’m ready to go back to school. Is that it? Nope it’s not! Have you heard of the MyCAA program? It’s a fantastic program for YOU, the military spouse. You need to learn about this program.
