“Having our career courses classified by the Veteran’s Administration as eligible for military benefits is a proud distinction for Ashworth,” said Rodney Butler, U.S. Army First Sergeant, Retired and Ashworth College Military Education Coordinator. “To stand up to the demands of military life, it has always been Ashworth’s mission to develop programs of the highest quality and that are accredited, affordable and flexible.”
