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.
