ARLINGTON, Virginia, August 8, 2005

UMT’s Vice President, Dr. C. Eric Kirkland, happily announced on 20 July 2005, that UMT has been accepted to membership in Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC). This is yet another step UMT took towards being military friendly and to better its education services to US military community.

SOC was founded in 1972 to serve the special educational needs of servicemembers, who had trouble finishing college degrees due to their frequent relocations. Today, SOC is a consortium of over 1800 colleges and universities. It functions in cooperation with the Department of Defense (DoD), the Military Services including the National Guard, and the Coast Guard to help meet the voluntary higher education needs of servicemembers.

As a member of SOC, UMT:
  • Grants transfer credit for courses taken at other SOC member schools;
  • Has 0% residency requirement;
  • Grants transfer credit for military training and experience;
  • Grants transfer credit for extra-institutional learning by accepting CLEP and DSST challenge exams.
UMT appreciates the sacrifices of our servicemembers and strives to be as military-friendly as possible. The UMT Military Scholarship program reduces tuition rates to $250 per credit, which is within tuition assistance limits. For active duty personnel, UMT also offers a Military Book Scholarship that provides required textbooks at no cost to servicemember. All of UMT’s programs are approved for students to use their G.I. Bill benefits.

UMT is accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council, offering associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees in business, management, computer science, and information technology. UMT is a strategic partner of Defense Acquisition University (DAU), is affiliated with DANTES, and is a Global Registered Education Provider with the Project Management Institute (PMI). UMT also offers certificates in Project Management and in Acquisition Management that dovetail with degree programs.
