Educational Opportunities while on Active Duty

Active Duty

It’s easy to start and finish your degree at Unity Environmental University

We offer start dates five times a year and let you switch easily between full- and part-time. Getting deployed? You can pause your degree for up to two years without needing to reapply.

Getting your bachelor’s degree can help you attain officer level. While some may be promoted to officer without a degree, most positions require at least a bachelor’s degree to be considered for a commission.

Learn important skills that will help you once you return to civilian life. Your degree will help you return to civilian life with a leg up. Students who complete their education while on active duty can more quickly find better jobs once they return home.
