Affordable Online Education

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ashworth College for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
This seems to be a recurring theme these days - the high cost of a college education.  Room, board, tuition, text books, loans, grants, scholarships... If only all those things would balance out and it was possible to graduate from college without a huge debt!

There is an option that just might make that possible for military personnel and their families using their Post 9/11 GI Bill education benefits.  Ashworth College is  a 100% online, affordable, accredited and a great choice for obtaining a quality education.  Tuition is 50% less than the average accredited online university so the up to $13,500/36 months of education benefits military personnel can receive will go further.  That means it can be possible to graduate without debt.
It is kind of tempting to be jealous of that, but considering the sacrifices and service our military personnel give our country, I'm just glad there are options like this to help them.  They should get benefits for the service they are doing.
It looks like the flexibility of studying online would be great for anyone with an active life.  You can access courses, interact with instructors and complete assignments completely online anytime, anywhere.  Set your own pace of study, schedule and deadlines.  So it's good for military personnel who may move around a lot or be deployed and have to put their studies on hold, but it's also good for someone who's busy working or raising a family and would like to change careers or advance in his current career.  Or for a mom like me who's looking for her next direction in life now that the kids are grown and out of the house.
Ashworth College offers over 100 accredited online education programs that give you the skills you need for a rewarding career.  Military personnel and spouses may be able to get degrees for little to no out-of-pocket cost.  Anyone else can get started with a down payment of $100 or less and very affordable interest-free monthly payments as low as $29.
