What is MyCAA?
MyCAA is a $4000 education grant for eligible US military spouses of service members on active duty in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, O1-O2. Spouses married to members of the National Guard and Reserves in the same paygrades, in title 10 orders, are also eligible.
Why US Career Training Programs?
US Career Training Programs (USCTP) works in partnership with regionally accredited universities. Please see here for our list of MyCAA Approved university partners.
A 2005 study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that, in making decisions on credit transfer, about 84 percent of U.S. higher education institutions considered whether the sending institution is accredited, and many had policies stating that they would accept credits only from regionally accredited institutions.
