Homefront: Lessons Learned in Pursuit of Education, by Susan Reynolds "Spousal education benefits had never been something I really concerned myself with since I was able to attend college before I got married. But two events happened that made me pay attention to spouse education."

Getting Yourself to Graduation Day, Best practices for military spouses pursuing their college education by Bianca Strzalkowski, Marine Corps Spouse and 2011 Military Spouse of the Year by Milspouse Magazine.

Understanding Accreditation, From Tim Willard, Senior Director of Communications, CHEA (Council of Higher Education Accreditation)  “Accreditation” is review of the quality of higher education institutions and programs. In the United States, accreditation is a major way that students, families, government officials and employers know that an institution or program provides a quality education.

Important Questions about Accreditation, Degree mills and accreditation mills mislead and harm. In the United States, degrees and certificates from mills may not be acknowledged by other institutions when students seek to transfer or go to graduate school. Employers may not acknowledge degrees and certificates from degree mills when providing tuition assistance for continuing education. “Accreditation” from an accreditation mill can mislead students and the public about the quality of an institution. In the presence of degree mills and accreditation mills, students may spend a good deal of money and receive neither an education nor a useable credential.
