“Thankfully, there are schools that help military spouses pursue their goals even if they are not living in the U.S. I was able to enroll in UMUC night and online classes on post, which allowed me to continue working at the day job I loved. Another major challenge for many spouses is attending school when they have children and their spouse is either deployed or away for training. Most military families are not stationed close enough to rely on extended family for childcare and support, so schools like UMUC, which offer a wide variety of online and late-night courses, are so important.”
