Main Document

"Qualified military personnel and veterans can earn a degree without any out-of-pocket expense after TA, GI Bill, or DANTES benefits are applied - and no-cost Textbook Loans are available for active duty personnel."

Why do military friendly awards keep coming for the University of Management and Technology? There's a reason - several, in fact...

It's not a coincidence. When an institution of higher education does right by former and present members of the military, the world takes notice.

For the past three years, Military Advanced Education's Annual Guide has named UMT one of the top military friendly colleges and universities. "Let me congratulate you and the entire staff at the University of Management and Technology for the inspired effort that you put into making it easier for our men and women in uniform to advance their careers by enhancing their educations," said MAE Associate Publisher Glenn R. Berlin. "The men and women who serve our nation do so with true devotion and the same can be said of your faculty and staff."

In addition, G.I. Jobs Magazine honored UMT as a Military Friendly School for 2013 and ranks it in the top 15% of all colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide.

"We're proud of these honors and we intend to earn more by being the best at serving our troops, present and past," said J. Davidson Frame, the university's Academic Dean. "UMT was conceived as a distance-learning university that would make it easier, faster and less expensive for people to reach their education and life goals, and it executes that mission with passion and perseverance every day."

Like our armed forces, the distance-learning curriculum at UMT is ready to respond any time, day or night, anywhere in the world. From Kabul to Kuwait to the California coast and beyond, if you can get online, you can attend UMT.

Scholarships, help for families and credit for military experience:

UMT has grown so quickly in part because it accepts transfer credits and provides credit for military training and experience: up to 75% of the required hours for an undergraduate and 50% for a graduate degree can be transferred. In addition, it follows the AARTS, CCAF and SMART credit guidelines and accepts CLEP and DSST scores for college credit. UMT is also a university participant in USAF's Air University's Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative program and a strategic partner of Defense Acquisition University. It participates as one of Service-members Opportunity Colleges and offers extensive support to families of service members, and scholarships for military personnel, veterans and spouses.

"In fact," says Frame, "qualified military personnel and veterans can earn a degree without any out-of-pocket expense after TA, GI Bill, or DANTES benefits are applied - and no-cost Textbook Loans are available for active duty personnel."

The story of UMT as told by two graduates who reinvented themselves:

Jacqueline Howard was a military spouse with a full-time career, a toddler and another child on the way. After sudden moves to California and Alaska, she decided it was time to expand her career options, so entered UMT's flexible Masters in Management program with a Project Management concentration. Now she is a Strategic Business Process Specialist helping to cultivate Six Sigma company culture at a major hospital in Alaska. "I was pleasantly surprised at how far distance education has come since my undergraduate days," she said. "My UMT Master's revitalized my career."

A 100% service-connected Viet Nam-era disabled veteran who had experienced narrowed opportunities for lifelong learning because of a service-related disability, Robert A. Chapman of Mansfield Texas earned a Master of Science in Management with an Acquisition Management concentration at UMT. He describes it as the launching point of his current success in business. A U.S. Contracting Officer, Special Deputy U.S. Marshal and Federal Law Enforcement Officer with the U.S. Department of Justice, he served two tours of duty with the U.S. Department of Justice, at the U.S. Embassy, Baghdad, Iraq, managing all contracting and administrative support for Saddam Hussein's trial. On one combat mission to Kurdistan with the U.S. Marshals Special Operations Group, he was responsible for saving the life of a witness. He also designed and implemented an energy acquisition program focused on cost savings and received a Presidential Award for Leadership in Federal Energy Management.
