Can I attend Full Sail if I’m in the military?


It’s not your typical 9 to 5 job, but there are a number of students that study with us while actively serving in the military – so if you have the time, we can probably find a way to make it happen. Each individual’s case is going to be unique, but typically our online degree programs are going to offer the best options for your schedule.

“Because of the flexibility of the way weekly assignments work, online classes are usually better suited for these students,” says admissions representative Eric Champion.

We realize that some our degrees are only offered on the Full Sail campus, so it’s also possible for active personnel to begin a portion of their education online, then transition to a campus program after their service has ended. “If they’re within 12 months of getting out of the military and want to begin classes, they have the option to get started in an online format with these hybrid degrees,” Champion says.

Being able to juggle a full-time military schedule with outside commitments can be a challenge, but dedication and time-management can make balancing service and education achievable.

“I had a student years back who was a reservist, and even with the obligations he had, he was able not only to graduate, but to be the valedictorian of the class,” Champion says. “So, if you’re willing to handle the struggles that may come up with scheduling, it’s possible to do incredibly well.”
