1.) California Institute of Arts & Technology
CIAT believes that you deserve an education worthy of your service. They offer twelve different programs for active duty members and veterans, along with a combination of certifications and hands-on training that empower you to take your education to the next level. Whether you’re advancing your career in the armed forces or transitioning back into civilian life, CIAT will make sure you’re prepared for everything.
At CIAT, they know how difficult it can be juggling active duty while expanding your education. How could you possibly squeeze in classes and studying while on-call and ready for deployment 24/7? That’s where they can help. Our flexible in-person and online course schedules make it easy to earn your degree no matter where you’re stationed. CIAT also offers Active Duty Tuition Assistance to help foot the bill for your new degree. Tuition Assistance (TA) funds are a unique, distinct source of financial aid available to eligible service members. Tuition Assistance (TA) will be classified as a “first payer” and be applied to students’ account prior to the application of any Pell Grant awarded.
With your service behind you, it’s time to transition back into civilian life with a degree in IT, software development or media arts. They’ll pay specific attention to your needs with our intimate class sizes and responsive career counseling services. They also proudly offer financial aid options such as the Post 9/11 GI Bill® aid package and MyCAA scholarship programs.
