Operation Homefront

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ashworth College. All opinions are 100% mine.

Being married to a Naval Strike Aviator is wonderful, but not without its challenges sometimes.  Military spouses face a variety of challenges - from being both mother and father when the spouse is deployed to supplementing the family income.  Now I am a Stay at Home Mom (thank you Jet Pilot for that!!), but I know quite a few women that are working moms/military wives and its a huge juggling act/stressor.   But finding a good job shouldn't be one of them. We move so much that sometimes getting retrained for portable careers and work-at-home jobs is the best option for us.  It is why many military spouses go back to school for retraining so they CAN have a job wherever we go. And online schools provide the necessary education that is both affordable and portable.  Its a fact that today there are almost 4,000,000 students – more than 1/5 of all higher education students – taking at least one course online.   Well Ashworth College has realized that and started outreaching to military wives and mamas!! YAY!!

Some Facts about Ashworth:

  1. Ashworth was named 2010 GI Jobs Military Friendly School
  2. Participate in Military benefits and educational programs: DANTES, Service members Opportunity Colleges (SOC) , A.C.E. ,GI Bill, MyCAA
  3. For budget conscious military spouses, this helps cut down on time away from the family as well as money saved in gas, babysitting, daycare etc.
  4. PSCing: no worries. Spouses can pause their studies and resume when they a settled in their new home. Because it is 100% online, no more worries about out-of-state tuition or loosing credits due to transferring schools
  5. Research shows tuition is as much as 88% less than bachelor's degree programs at a traditional brick and mortar institution
  6. Tuition is as low as $80 per credit hour and includes all books and course materials
  7. Offers zero-interest financing plus a low monthly payment plan.
  8. Unlike other programs, you are guaranteed to graduate without student loan debt
  9. No entrance exams required
  10. Portable education for portable careers and work-at-home careers
  11. Choose from more than 100+ nationally accredited career diploma, Associate Degree, Bachelor's Degree, Master's Degree and Certificate programs for today's hottest and most popular careers, including: Medical Billing, Health Care Management, Criminal Justice, Business Administration, Human Resources, Early Childhood Education, Psychology , eBusiness, Paralegal, and more.

I know personally going back to school for some sort of degree is a intermediate goal in my life right now and after learning about all this from Ashworth, they definitely have become a huge contender for continued education for me.  For more info check them out here
