President Obama has been working with the Department of Veterans Affairs to come up with some solutions to issues that have always faced military students. The newest program deals with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and provides a way for students to get help mental health problems after they leave service. There are a variety of programs out there that have long been in existence. However Veterans Affairs has always been criticized for its lack of programs and treatment facilities for these issues. As students move forward with their education, it’s important for them to find programs, financial aid and support groups to ensure that they do well. They can even find support for their families to go to school.
1. Getting Financial Aid
While the GI Bill pays for most of your college expenses, it won’t cover everything especially if you weren’t in the military for that long. If you do have the Post-9/11 GI Bill, then you should already be in the Yellow Ribbon Program, which pays for your undergraduate tuition at a public institution or pays $17,000 if you go private. In addition, you can fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid to receive more financial aid and also alert your college that you want to find more scholarships that help servicemembers and veterans.
2. Scholarships for Military Dependents
Multiple programs exist for both spouses and children of military veterans and servicemembers. Each branch of the military has different financial aid programs, and there are also private scholarships and state-funded programs. Some of the best scholarships for dependents include Adrian & Corena Swanier Scholarship for Military Children, America’s Child Higher Education Assistance, Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, Chief Petty Officer Scholarship Fund, Folds of Honor Foundation, Heroes’ Legacy Scholarships and Hope for the Warriors.
3. Join Support Groups
Most military friendly colleges will also provide a lot of information on how to transition and work through problems with going back to school after the military. Vista Military is a good example of this. As new programs are unveiled like Obama’s planned “8 Keys to Success” under the new Chronic Effects of Neurotrauma Consortium. However many schools provide meetups for different branches of the military, military students support and veterans groups. You can check in with an adviser or just look online at your school’s organizations.
There are all sorts of ways to get more involved with your education and save money. If you are strictly depending on the GI Bill to pay for your tuition, you’ll find that it doesn’t cover all of your book costs or living costs particularly if you’re supporting a family. The best way to earn more financial aid for college and even provide some more for your kids is by choosing a military friendly college with a cheaper tuition cost for military students. You’ll be able to transfer some of your benefits to kids and still get a degree as well.

A Master in Business Administration degree is one of the most prestigious that anyone can receive. Graduate students receive it by taking courses in such subjects as finance, marketing, customer relations, operations management and human resources, and many choose to specialize in one or another of these fields. Having been awarded the degree, the recipient can then go on to work as an executive in some major company, perhaps becoming the head of the human resources or other department. This article will be exclusively about the MBA online programs offered at Norwich University — the Military College of Vermont. This private institution is located in Northfield and is the oldest of the nation’s six senior military colleges; its honors will be mentioned at the end of the article.
It is possible to graduate from Norwich University in as little as two years after taking all online courses that count towards an MBA. Groups of students who progress with each other until graduation consist of a maximum of sixteen. Three possible areas of concentration may be pursued by those who are working towards the degree:
- Finance: covers forex markets, the international financial environment, multinational corporation management, portfolio management
- Organizational leadership: skills required for managing a modern-day multinational organization, including change management and models of organizational behavior
- Project management: This is one of the most important and responsible jobs that anyone can have, as those who regularly watch The Apprentice well know. The student in this field learns such skills as procuring assets, risk management, communication, life cycles and strategic problem solving.
A free brochure that outlines the MBA curriculum may be ordered on Norwich’s website. The form is on the left side of the screen (unlike at other universities, where it is on the right). The applicant simply selects the highest level of education he or she has completed, fills in his first and last names (separately) and gives his ZIP code, phone number and email address.
Norwich University has received accreditations from two bodies:
- the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs
- the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education)
Its MBA program has been placed in the top quarter by U. S. News and World Report.

A lot of the last generation has discovered that an education isn’t carrying them as far as they were told it would. With jobs at a premium, many are out-of-work and frustrated, unable to find the work they need to get experience to get further work. It’s a vicious cycle, and many have turned to unpaid internships in hopes of finding paid work down the line. However, many ingenious former-students have turned to a different solution and begun to seek out blue collar work. Many grew up told they had to go to college or get stuck flipping burgers, but a few are re-learning that there are other options.
Being willing to get your hands dirty and apply elbow grease to your day-to-day vastly opens your options for employment. The solution is to simply pursue vocational studies. Most communities have businesses that offer the necessary training and certification, and it’s often possible to begin working as a part of your training, which ultimately results in getting paid much earlier than if you’d pursued a white-collar career.
Choosing an industry to work in is the first thing. The second thing is pursuing certification. HVAC certification is often considered a good starting point to look into as HVAC training is prevalently available and researching it can be somewhat easier, and understanding it will help you better understand other industries as well. Those facing possible underemployment should be willing to consider alternate paths to a stable livelihood; don’t bet everything on pushing papers!

Omaha residents who are considering filing bankruptcy should study the two main types of bankruptcy available to them before making a decision. The two chapters to consider are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. Each debtor’s particular financial situation will fit within one of these two bankruptcy chapters. The main consideration in the beginning is which chapter the debtors will qualify for.
A Chapter 7 is sometimes called the “total liquidation” bankruptcy. Before qualifying for a Chapter 7, a debtor must take the “means test.” If the debtors’ income is under the median income for a family their size in their state, they will qualify for a Chapter 7. If it is not, more calculations are performed. If there is not enough “disposable” income left after all the debtors’ expenses are calculated, they may file Chapter 7.
All of the debtors’ assets are then liquidated and the debtors are given a fresh start. They will, however, be allowed to keep certain property and automobiles.
If the debtors are unable to pass the means test, they must file Chapter 13. The bankruptcy trustee contacts each of the debtors’ creditors and works out a figure that the debtors will pay back. All the debts are combined into one payment to the trustee who, in turn, pays all the creditors. Chapter 13 repayment plans last from three to five years.
The bankruptcy attorney Omaha at Skrupa Law Office will be able to help debtors through this difficult time in getting a new financial start.
