Educational Benefits for Military Personnel & Family
Whether you’re active duty, guard, reservist, a veteran or spouse of an active member of the armed forces, you may qualify for special benefits that will pay for all or part of your Penn Foster education.
The Department of Defense and other government agencies have created these educational benefits to provide service members and their families with opportunities to further their education and training.
Penn Foster was the first distance education school to work with the military and has been providing the education programs to our military service men and women for almost 90 years.

Here are some of the programs that may be available to you:
Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Program (MyCAA)
Military spouses pay nothing for training that will prepare them for careers in allied health, education, business, and more. The MyCAA program provides financial assistance – up to $4000 – to spouses of active duty military members and spouses of activated Guard and Reserve service members (deployed for a year or more) for certification, licensure, education or training in careers in high-growth, high-demand occupations.
Approved for Veterans Educational Benefits
Many Penn Foster programs are approved for veteran’s educational benefits. Reservists may also qualify for veterans educational benefits. If you think you may be eligible, check with your local or regional VA office.
Military Education Services
The Department of Defense provides all types of educational services for active and non-active military personnel and their families. Your benefit options may include: Military Tuition Assistance, GI Bill Top-up, GI Bill, Federal Financial Aid, and Scholarships and Grants.
Service Member Opportunity Colleges (SOC)
Penn Foster is a member of this consortium of colleges and universities that are dedicated to helping service members and their families with educational opportunities.
