Spouses and Dependents


While a transition from military to civilian professions can prove difficult for active-duty service members, it is often even more so for their spouses and children.

Trying to balance education with the demands of relocation, reintegration, marriage and/or parenting can be a challenging task.

If you are the spouse or dependent of an active service member, Ultimate Medical Academy (FHE) is here to help you pursue your desire to improve your skills and expertise by offering military benefits for spouses and dependents.

Our Military Financial Aid Representatives can answer your program eligibility questions and help you determine which reduced rates you qualify for.
