The Patriot U Advantage

Traditionally, veterans pursue a college education after separating from the service. However, college is not designed with the needs of veterans in mind. College is intended for adolescents, with few responsibilities and obligations, and the ability to give complete focus to the pursuit of completing a degree. Veterans rarely have that luxury. They are not adolescents, they are professionals looking to change careers. They have families to take care of, bills to pay, teams to coach, and a wide range of responsibilities accumulated over the course of a military career. These responsibilities are not conducive to success in an education system that requires that you be on campus 20 hours per week, plus commute time, and then engage in another 40 hours of self guided study on the various subject matters, for at least 4 years. 

Veterans need a different system. A system that takes into account the lifestyle and needs of professionals exiting the US military. That’s why Allegiant Giving has created, PATRIOT U. An education platform built specifically to cater to the needs of the professionals exiting the US military, pursuing their next career. Built by veterans, PatriotU provides streamlined pathways for post military professionals to find success as they pursue their next career.

  • 100% Online – All of our courses operate entirely remotely, with flexible time lines designed to custom fit your lifestyle

  • One course at a time – Taking only the classes needed to learn a particular skillset, you can focus and build from the ground up without diluting your time with extraneous unrelated electives. You’re here to learn a skillset, and start a career. If you want to learn about history or philosophy, read a book.
  • LinkedIn integrated – Completion of our courses will be displayed on your LinkedIn, adding to your online resume in real time
  • Professional Development – Sometimes you need to fill in a skill gap, or refresh/update your knowledge base. You can take courses to become a more confident writer, or better understand statistics. Choose for a variety of skills that will help you go farther, faster. 
  • Accountability – The US military leverages humanities social nature very effectively, recognizing that teammates will do more for one another, than most individuals will do for themselves. When exiting the military, we lose that team, and often lose the initiative to help ourselves. PatriotU is that teammate that you depend on, and that depends on you.
  • Just like in the military, PATRIOT U knows the importance of working as a team to accomplish a mission. Your new mission may be very individualistic, however the root to success requires teamwork. We are that team. Regular events, video meetings, and battle buddies.
