Military spouses deserve a high-quality education that leads to an in-demand career. What's more, they need a career path that's portable, so relocation never gets in the way of reaching their goals.
 
The Department of Defense's Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) program provides up to $4,000 in financial assistance to eligible military spouses for education and training in any University of Maryland University College (UMUC) associate's degree or certificate program, including*:
 
Accounting
Computer networking
Project management
 
The MyCAA financial assistance is not limited to these UMUC programs; if you have other education or training ideas, discuss with your Military OneSource Career and Education counselors.
