Military spouses: Earn a degree online as your family serves

The military lifestyle often requires families to move across the country or overseas. That makes it challenging to maintain your academic career. But Oregon State Ecampus provides the high-quality education and dose of consistency that you deserve no matter where you are out there.

Even better, OSU allows military members to transfer education benefits to their spouses or dependents in order to pay for tuition. Military spouses who utilize military education benefits may also be eligible for additional funding under the Department of Defense MyCAA (Military spouse Career Advancement Accounts) program.

Explore Oregon State's online programs to find the one that suits you best.

You are your family's support system. Let us be yours.

Many Ecampus students are military dependents who successfully juggle their OSU studies amid family obligations, cross-country relocations and other demands of life in the service.

   When I married an Army drill sergeant, the only thing I knew for sure was that wherever life took me, my school was going to have to come with me. Because of Ecampus, I was able to continue taking classes. No matter what happened or how often we moved, Ecampus always fit.   

– Katie Rodgers, U.S. Marine and OSU Ecampus agricultural sciences graduate
