Active Duty

At CIAT, we know how difficult it can be juggling active duty while expanding your education. How could you possibly squeeze in classes and studying while on-call and ready for deployment 24/7? That’s where we can help. Our flexible in-person and online course schedules make it easy to earn your degree no matter where you’re stationed. CIAT also offers Active Duty Tuition Assistance to help foot the bill for your new degree.

With your service behind you, it’s time to transition back into civilian life with a degree in IT, software development or media arts.
