  • Military Exclusive Opportunity for Tuition & College Credit Savings

    Until recently, tuition assistance has been available to military personnel since the late 1940’s.  However, due to recent budget cuts, military branches have been forced to suspend their tuition assistance programs.  “These cuts will have an impact on military families.  The National Education Alliance is subsidizing the cost of the in-depth study materials from iStudySmart.com to help out during the suspension of tuition assistance.  This will allow military personnel to continue to prepare for and pass exams to complete college credit.  Our goal is to support the military during this time,” said National Education Alliance President, Shara Wright.  The courses are normally $225 each but with the funds provided by the Alliance, military personnel can have online access to the iStudySmart.com traditional courses for $49.95 per month per course with the exclusive military discount on the SmartSubscription.  There is no limit to the number of courses which may be purchased in this manner.  iStudySmart.com’s test preparation materials are a flexible alternative to help military personnel complete college credit toward degree completion or for work related advancement. 


    Military members can prepare for their college credit equivalent exams using iStudySmart.com materials at the reduced rate and test out with DSST and CLEP exams.  These exams remain funded by the military.


    Students can TAP into a program that is:

    • Transferable: over 3,800 colleges accept credit by exam
    • Affordable: one course per month for only $49.95 – for military personnel
    • Portable: work at your pace – anywhere in the world


    iStudySmart.com is the only publisher of in-depth study materials endorsed by DSST, formerly known as DANTES Subject Standardized Test. Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth was recognized for its superior educational performance and Chief Master Sgt. Wanda Dillon stated, “Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth went from 5 graduates of the Community College of the Air Force to 77 graduates in one year and iStudySmart.com contributed to that success.” 


    For military personnel to take advantage of the iStudySmart.com discount, please email info@iStudySmart.com with Military in the subject line.  Members of the Military will be given a coupon code to use at checkout.

  • Get The Credit You Deserve. Find out how with the National Education Alliance Counseling Center!


    As a military service member, you’ve already completed some college credits that can be applied to a degree.  Credits can come from basic combat training, on-the-job training, and advanced training.

    The credits you have already earned may include both traditional college credit and nationally-recognized alternatives that colleges across the nation consider in transfer for credit.


    The National Education Alliance has recently opened its College Counseling Center which can help you determine what colleges and universities will accept your completed college credits. The Counseling Center allows you to access a database of over 300 colleges and universities with one application. The database searches the best potential college/university that fits your needs for your chosen degree.

    What’s more: the Counseling Center will provide transcript evaluations for the top three schools that are most cost effective and award the most previously completed credits. This feature helps you save time and money and minimizes the loss of credits when transferring.


    The Counseling Center includes a four step process to support your current plan of action and to help guide you through completion of your degree.

    As an extra perk, the National Education Alliance is waiving its $95 membership fee in honor of the Counseling Center’s opening.* Not only will you have access to the Counseling Center at a discounted price but you will also have access to all of the products/services offered by the National Education Alliance.

  • Live for Today – Learn for Tomorrow


    By Jeffrey Cox, iStudySmart.com Military Educational Consultant


    Liberty is the most precious of gifts. My generation never had to fight for this freedom, it was offered to us on a silver platter, by people who fought for it with their lives.  All throughout the United States, cemeteries remind us of the young men, and women who never made it home, and whose memory we now cherish.  My generation does not own this freedom; we are merely its custodians.  

    The fundamental right to education is a benefit of the freedom that was fought so dearly for.  As Americans, we recognize education as a critical building block for our future.  The immediate and long-term benefits and opportunities that a quality education offers are key to national development and to individual freedom.

    Quality educational programs and opportunities are available for military personnel and their families through iStudySmart.com. Soldiers and their families can complete college credit and earn their degree.

    For more information about iStudySmart.com and how you can receive military discounts, contact me today at 1-800-737-2222, ext. 1421

     Life is too short to think small. Remember to live for today and learn for tomorrow.
