LOS ANGELES, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced College wants to express its great admiration and appreciation to all military veterans for their bravery and outstanding service to our country. However, what veterans today really need and deserve is a leg-up on the education they require to stay competitive in their post-military careers. Towards that end, this widely praised private college does everything it can to make it possible for veterans to earn an online associates degree. Offering a Yellow Ribbon Scholarship especially for veterans, the outstanding faculty and staff of Advanced College is committed to providing veterans with what they need to take advantage of a wide variety of assistance.

Whether veterans are interested in an online business administration degree or wish to get started on a degree program or certificate program in such burgeoning fields as surgical technology, medical assistant, computer networking, massage therapy, or ESL (English as a Second Language), Advanced College is here to help veterans find the necessary wherewithal to better themselves through career-oriented learning.

The college's commitment to helping veterans begins with its Yellow Ribbon Program. Advanced College has partnered with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs to provide additional assistance to veterans to help them through school without undue financial hardship. The program has been designed in conjunction with the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The bill is an update of the historic law, officially titled the Servicemen's Readjustment Act of 1944, which has provided innumerable benefits to honorably discharged military personnel for generations.

Among the other benefits available to veterans, Advanced College will also be happy to help unemployed former servicemen and servicewomen take advantage of the VRAP. The Veteran's Retraining Assistance Program is designed to help nontraditional students attend school full time in order to learn new job skills. It is open to all veterans 35 and over who have received an other than dishonorable discharge.

Of course, today's veterans are busy people with families and jobs, and they can benefit a great deal from the opportunity to study online. Whether you are interested in pursuing an online accounting degree or require both online and in-person instruction in order to pursue a career as a medical assistant or physical therapy aide, Advanced College can make an Associate degree or career skills certificate far more accessible that most people imagine.

Indeed, some degree programs can be taken 100% online. Also, some students can receive a laptop computer from Advanced College as part of their curriculum and/or training program. Finally, once you obtain your associates degree, Advanced College's articulation program with Kaplan University means that you will be eligible for a 10% tuition discount at Kaplan, where you will be well on your way to earning your four-year degree.
