"The distance learning environment is extremely conductive and flexible enough to support the high degree of uncertainty regarding scheduling that military service entails. I was able to complete work while TDY or on deployments if I had access. If not, I could work offline, and submit or participate when access was available. Also, the professors were extremely accommodating regarding scheduling conflicts, deadline extensions, or understanding of hardships that we may have to endure while trying to complete work. As many of the faculty and staff are prior military, there is an understanding that is obvious to us as students."
