A Degree From Embry-Riddle Worldwide Will Enhance Your Military and Post-Military Career
Embry-Riddle is the world’s pre-eminent university for aviation and aerospace education. However, our dynamic, hands-on programs will prepare you for careers well beyond the limits of the sky.
Our Worldwide Campus has been working with U.S. military service members since 1970, helping them to earn a degree while on active duty or as veterans. And we do it at more than 90 military installations around the globe.
The Embry-Riddle Andrews Campus — located at Andrews Air Force Base — offers associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees, as well as undergraduate certifications, that will help you in the military, after you’ve served your country, or as a civilian. Here’s how:
Nearly all military commissioned officers hold college degrees. Many do so before entering the armed forces after attending a service academy, a military college, or a university with a Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program.
For enlisted service members who did not enter the military as an officer, Embry-Riddle Worldwide is here to help you achieve your goal of getting into Officer Candidate School (OCS) or Officer Training School (OTS) and becoming a commissioned officer.
Our flexible course delivery methods allow service members to take courses that accommodate your military duties and family life. Those serving can attend courses in a classroom, via recorded or real-time video conferencing online, or through a blend of modes.
Take classes at Embry-Riddle Worldwide and set yourself up to soar as a military officer.
Entering the civilian workforce after completing service to your country can be a daunting task. However, Embry-Riddle Worldwide is here to help you earn a college degree and become an attractive job candidate in the field of your choice.
Service members can earn a degree while on active duty thanks to Worldwide's flexible modes of instruction, as well as government tuition assistance for the military.
Then, once you trade in your G.I. boots for dress shoes, you can hit the post-military ground running by being able to list "college graduate" on your resume.
Let Embry-Riddle Worldwide serve your educational needs while you serve your country.
Not everyone working at a military base is member of the armed services. Service members' families and civilian base employees are also an important part of the Andrews, MD Air Base community.
Military spouses can take advantage of their proximity to an Embry-Riddle Worldwide facility by taking classes at our Andrews, MD Campus. Additional financial assistance is also available under the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts for spouses who seek certification or an associate degree in an occupation that may be available regardless of where a service member is stationed.
Other civilians employed on base can improve their job prospects by earning a degree at our Andrews, MD Campus.
