JUNE 12-18, 2019 UCW 19 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM Fayetteville Technical Community College, a Military-Friendly School at militaryfriendly.com, takes pride in serving active-duty service mem- bers, reservists, veterans and military spouses. FTCC partners with Military One Source's My Career Advancement Account. Through this partnership, FTCC is able to support hundreds of military spouses in advancing their educational backgrounds and providing opportunities to compete in a growing, high-demand job market. MyCAA is a workforce development schol- arship program that provides up to $4,000 of financial assistance to eligible military spouses. Military spouses can pursue a license, certificate or associate degree in various program areas. Persons who qualify to use the scholarship are spouses of service members on Title 10 military orders, grades E-1 to E-5, W-1 to W-2 and O-1 to O-2. Although MyCAA does not provide fund- ing for the cost of books, supplies and materials, spouses are encouraged to apply for federal student aid to obtain eligibility for the Pell Grant. FTCC offers 250-plus occupational, technical and college transfer curriculum programs, and FTCC's corporate and continuing education area offers a wide range of programs and personal interest courses. With so many selections to choose from, spouses can ensure they receive the right educa- tional program to meet their needs and desires. For students unsure of their professional goals, FTCC explores each learner's personal interests and examines the appropriate career fields that match a student's individual profile. FTCC guarantees students receive the best education possible by providing top instructors who are passionate about teaching. In addition to Fayetteville and Spring Lake locations, FTCC serves students at the Fort Bragg Training and Education Center, which is a convenient location for our community's military population stationed at Fort Bragg. Eligible participating spouses establish an online MyCAA account through Military One Source and complete the enrollment process. This includes filling out an enrollment application, turning in official high school and college transcripts and completing appropriate place- ment testing, if applicable. The spouse then requests a MyCAA Education plan from the college and provides the plan to a Military One Source represen- tative or uploads it to their online MyCAA Military One Source account for approval. Spouses have easy access to request payment for each course, licensure or certification pro- gram through the MyCAA account or by con- tacting a Military One Source representative, following approval into the program. FTCC's goal is to give its students every opportunity for success, and its staff celebrates the opportunity to serve students by provid- ing a leading education through an accredited and distinguished college. FTCC considers it a great honor to be ranked No. 1 in the Top 10 Gold Category Military Friendly Schools, 2019-2020. We thank every student for making FTCC the school of choice and invite you to enroll soon. Students can register now for summer and fall classes at www.faytechcc.edu/apply-now. YOLANDA S.
