Salt Lake City (May 07, 2013) —
Stevens-Henager College, a leading provider of on-campus and online higher education, today announced an expansion to its Utah military service program, which is designed to assist and encourage military members in Utah and their spouses to pursue undergraduate degrees in business, information technology, graphic arts and several healthcare programs, including nursing, surgical technology and respiratory therapy.
The expansion of benefits to the military service program includes tuition discounts up to 40 percent for active military service members, National Guard, reservists and their spouses at the college's Utah campuses. For added convenience, students may take classes at one of Stevens-Henager College's seven main, branch and satellite campuses in Utah, enroll in one of its online degree programs offered by Independence University or enroll in a combination of online and on-campus classes.
"We recognize there are a number of barriers servicemen and servicewomen and their families face when pursuing a college degree, like balancing their military service with family and personal responsibilities," said Eric Juhlin, Stevens-Henager College's chief executive officer. "We appreciate their service and sacrifice. Our priority is to work with these families to remove the barriers they face by providing the type of flexible education they need to balance their life with their educational goals."
As part of its military service program, each Stevens-Henager College campus has a military liaison that can help students determine the benefits for which they are eligible, determine possible transfer credits they have earned and identify degree programs that match their goals. The liaison also works directly with service members to ensure they get the most out of their experience with the college.
Stevens-Henager College is a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges Consortium and can help active-duty military members identify additional opportunities through the GI Bill, Legacy Grants, the VA's Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Program, and the military's Tuition Assistance program. The college also participates in AARTS, DANTES, ACE and the Yellow Ribbon Program. For its commitment to veterans, Stevens-Henager College's Ogden/West Haven and Layton campuses were named “Best for Vets Colleges” for 2013 by Military Times.
