MyCAA Use Down / GI Bill Changes

The new MyCAA program is certainly not getting used as much as the old MyCAA – only 18,000 spouses have taken advantage of the program since it re-started in October compared to 136,000 who signed up for the old version. Many spouses are confused about who can take advantage of it and whether it will work for their education goals. Please help get the word out so spouses don’t miss out on this program.


MyCAA NOTE:

• New England College of Business and Finance has an Associate Degree in Business for ALL military spouses with a total tuition cost of $4,000 and less than $100 is fees. http://www.necb.edu/mycaa

• American College of Education has master’s degrees leading to a certificate that qualify for MyCAA (because of the certificate part) and the total tuition for a master’s degree is $6,950: http://www.ace.edu/military

  2. It really is surprising how confused a lot of veterans are about the benefits they have available to them. We should all do our part to educate them.
