Military wives that have bachelors and continuing education?

I'm having an extremely hard time figuring out about continuing education and being a military wife. I know tons of women who ARE going in for their bachelor's degrees but NONE who have actually went on to another degree or completed their bachelors... I’ve tried checking websites… and I’m not sure if I could trust a recruiter to give me a strait answer. I just need something answered.

About scholarships given to military dependants... do they go beyond into masters or PhD?

I only ask because since the school I am currently enrolled in has just recently turned into a four-year university – they have not had any of the classes I needed to get a decent degree in science… not many science classes offered and they all occurred during base classes. They are FINALLY getting science classes that would actually go towards my prerequisites to get into vet school… but the thing is… I can graduate THIS coming semester (fall). My Pell Grant is about to get taken away if I graduate (even though I believe I have one semester/year left if I choose to put it off).

So – will I be ineligible to receive a military scholarship if I graduate now? Should I put it off? I don’t want to run the risk of receiving absolutely no degree.

I would probably try to talk to a school advisor but then again the advisors I have at my school suck! Hopefully your school is better and can answer such questions

Have you checked with the financial aid office at your school? That's where I would start.

Same problem everyone else is having - everyone sucks. Everyone is new at the job and have no clue what they are doing or what's going on. I won't know if I had financial aid this year at all until the day before classes start. A great time to know if I can join or not, no?
