The list was compiled through exhaustive research starting last May during which G.I. Jobs polled more than 7,000 schools nationwide. Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students and academic accreditations.

Schools on the Military Friendly Schools list, including Ashworth, also offer additional benefits to military students including credit for service and programs specifically for military spouses.

"Being recognized by G.I. Jobs as a top institution serving the military is a well deserved and honorable distinction for Ashworth College," said Gary M. Keisling, Ashworth College President and CEO.

"Ashworth is proud to offer a wide range of programs to those serving in the U.S. military and their spouses," Keisling added. "It's our mission to ensure that our programs are of the highest quality, accredited, affordable and flexible. Our degree programs are offered at less than $100 dollars per credit hour, while most other schools push theirs to the maximum of $250. Military tuition benefits go further with Ashworth College, helping individuals achieve their education goals."

In addition to providing a variety of online and correspondence degree and certificate programs, Ashworth College is a member of Servicemember Opportunity Colleges Consortium (SOC). Ashworth also accepts A.C.E credits and is approved for a range of other military benefits to include GI/VA education benefits, DANTES, GoArmyEd, and MyCAA.

"Ashworth College and all of the Ashworth Military Advisors were behind me 100%. They answered all my questions and made sure that I had everything I needed from the day I first enrolled, right up until I received my Associate Degree," said Ervisa Ritt, who is currently stationed at Ft. Stewart. "It was such a great experience that enrolling in Ashworth's Bachelor's Degree program was an easy decision."

Ashworth College is also committed to developing more educational options for military students and their families.
