Villanova Military Savings
You do so much to support the servicemembers in your life. That’s why Villanova is pleased to offer you support for your own education pursuits. Military spouses and dependents are eligible to receive a 15% savings per certificate course, and 10% per course on degree programs. These savings can often be combined with Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits.
My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA)
The Department of Defense sponsors the MyCAA program to provide financial assistance to military spouses. Eligible participants include spouses of active-duty servicemembers in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2 and O1-O2, as well as the spouses of activated Guard and Reserve members within those ranks. Spouses of Guard and Reserve members must be able to start and complete their courses while their sponsor is on Title 10 orders. Note: The MyCAA program does not include Coast Guard spouses.
