Education Benefits for Military Spouses and Dependents
"Being a military spouse requires many sacrifices along with your service member. National American University (NAU) is privileged to learn and grow with you while supporting the obligations you and your family may be experiencing." - Jacey Moran
At NAU, we understand that military families are faced with unique challenges. Between caring for the family, deployments, and base transfers, time becomes a precious commodity. We would like to make going back to school as stress free as possible. NAU offers on-site day, evening and weekend classes, as well as completely online degree programs to fit your schedule. Jacey Moran relates with these challenges, she says, "being a military spouse requires many sacrifices along with your service member. National American University (NAU) is privileged to learn and grow with you while supporting the obligations you and your family may be experiencing. My husband is currently deployed for Operation Enduring Freedom and I can relate to and appreciate the support a military spouse needs. As both a faculty and staff member at NAU, I am proud of the caring and supporting environment NAU provides to our military families as you reach for your educational goals. NAU offers strong student support services through our dedicated faculty and staff to help provide you all the resources you need along your degree path, including academic and career services support. The flexibility of the courses enables you to live the military life while achieving your educational goals. We look forward to becoming part of your extended military family!"
