Online Programs for Military Students

Are you an active duty member of military, a veteran, or the spouse of an active duty member of the military? Then pursuing your education at Argosy University - Online Programs can be particularly well-suited for people like you - military personnel who want to earn a degree while on active duty or on reserve.

Obtaining a degree online can fit into your busy work and life schedule. You can attend class when it fits your schedule from anywhere you can connect to the internet. And, if you are deployed to different locations, you can stay in the same degree program.

Perhaps the best part about pursuing your associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s or even doctorate online while on active duty is that when you do leave the military, you will be ahead of the game and ready to pursue the next phase of your life and career.

The Same Types of Benefits as Ground Schools

Still More Commonly Misused Words

We're back with the fourth installment of commonly misused words, just when you thought we'd already exhausted every possibility. Check out the latest list:

  • Anyway or Anyways. In this case, you don’t need to remember which word to use in a particular situation because, as a matter of fact, anyways is a nonstandard form of anyway and is never technically correct. Since we’re sure you wouldn’t want to use an incorrect word anyway, we’ll move on to the next pair.
  • Accept or Except. Oh, that crazy English language. Why are these words so similar, yet so different? Accept is a verb, as in “I cannot accept the fact that he is leaving on Friday.” By accepting, or refusing to accept, you’re doing something. Meanwhile, except is a preposition used to clarify what or who is not included, as in “Everyone except Jodie met after work to plan the party” or “The box of crayons had all of the colors I needed, except orange.”
  • Affect or Effect. Just when you thought it couldn’t get crazier, we bring you this pair, which are often confused in everyday situations. Luckily, there’s a relatively simple way to remember which is which. Affect is a verb, as in “The inclement weather will undoubtedly affect my commute to work” or “I was not affected by the cold weather because I had dressed appropriately.” Effect, however, is a noun, as in “Luckily, I did not experience any side effects after taking the medication for my head cold” or “The construction noises outside will definitely have an effect on my ability to sleep tonight.”

As always, thanks for reading!

A cartoon scarecrow will be hidden in three different locations in the Campus Common throughout the week, and students are given a clue as to his whereabouts each day and are instructed to indicate not only where they found the scarecrow, but also how the resource on the page where they found him has helped them in their classes. Three winners will be chosen, and they will each receive a $20 gift code for the school apparel store.
