Spring Hill College announced an expansion of the military scholarship program, now offering substantial tuition discounts for active duty and reserve members, military spouses, and Coast Guard civilian employees. This expansion dramatically increases the opportunity for these valued members of our community to advance in their military and civilian career paths.
Patrick Sprague, Director of Spring Hill’s Center for Online Learning said, “The Center for Online Learning is extremely proud of active duty service students and considers it an honor to serve those who serve.”
Captain Chris Hulser, Commanding Officer of the U. S. Coast Guard Aviation Training Center in Mobile, said, “Without question, our personnel recognize the seamless connection between Spring Hill College’s mission ‘to form responsible leaders in service to others,’ and the Coast Guard’s ethos ‘of being responsible leaders in service to others. In a recent meeting with President Joe Lee, Captain Hulser thanked Spring Hill College “for their extraordinary commitment to the lifelong learners of the U. S. Coast Guard.”
Spring Hill first began its partnership with Mobile’s U. S. Coast Guard Aviation Training Center in 2009. Since then over 600 service members utilized their Tuition Assistance funding to earn various degrees. Today, these graduates serve in the halls of Congress, corridors of fortune 500 companies, and decision-making offices of Coast Guard headquarters in Washington, D.C.
In 2017, Spring Hill launched the first online MBA program with workforce tracks in leadership, logistics and supply chain management, project management, and data analytics. Concentrations are invaluable to military personnel as they progress in their organizations or separate from service to pursue civilian employment.
Today Spring Hill offers 19 different online e-programs with tracks in Business, Healthcare, and Liberal Arts.
