MyCAA Military Spouse Tuition Assistance Program
Welcome to Our Military Personnel and Their Spouses!
AHDPGTM is proud to once again be named a Military Friendly School. This is our 6th consecutive year winning this distinction and something the entire team at AHDPGTM is extremely proud of. Now in its sixth year, the list of Military Friendly Schools® was compiled through extensive research and a data-driven survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. Ernst and Young, LLP independently verified the survey tabulation process, methodology, and weightings that comprise the list. Each year schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria and weightings developed with the assistance of an Academic Advisory Board (AAB) consisting of educators from schools across the country.
AHDPGTM is an active participant in the activities of the U.S. Department of Defense to promote medical transcription as a viable occupation for military spouses.
Those who dedicate their lives to service for our country and risk their lives while separated from their families are often acknowledged. We see the stories of our military all over the media, and at AHDPGTM, we are proud of those who choose this life of service for our country.
Military Spouses Jobs and Training
There is another important segment of this group, however, and that is the often-forgotten military spouse. In the same way that the military personnel gives of themselves so too does the military spouse. Benefits of a healthcare documentation position for a Military spouse:
- Portable profession (take the job anywhere your spouse is stationed).
- Work at home opportunities.
- No more feelings of being uprooted from a job.
We have a heart for the military and the military spouses. Simply put, we know the challenges you face as a military spouse and we welcome you to AHDPGTM!

MyCAA Funds May Cover 100% of Your Education!
Even though you may move from one duty station to the next, you can build a career that provides the opportunity and challenge you’re looking for. As a military spouse, you need a flexible way to get career training that prepares you for today’s portable careers. And you need an education that fits your family’s budget. At AHDPGTM, we can help you with both, from helping you secure MyCAA funds to pay for your education costs to building a solid educational foundation for a career you can take with you wherever you go.
What is MyCAA?
The Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts Program (MyCAA) is a Department of Defense (DoD) program that provides up to $4,000 to spouses of active duty military members and spouses of activated Guard and Reserve service members (deployed for a year or more) for certification, licensure, education or training in careers in high-growth, high-demand occupations.
Legal spouses of military service members with a minimum of one year remaining on active duty are eligible for the program. This includes spouses of active duty service members, Coast Guard deployed with the Navy, Active/Guard Reserve (AGR), and Reserve Component service members (Guard and Reserve) called to active duty for a year or more.
To apply for the program, you must complete an online profile and call a Military OneSource Career and Education Consultant at (800) 342-9647 to create a career plan and goal. If you need any assistance with your profile or eligibility questions, please call Military OneSource.
Who Is Eligible for Funding?
Spouse of an active-duty Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine service member, or activated Reserve member in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, or O1-O2.
If the spouse of a National Guard and/or AGR member, the sponsor must be on federal Title 10 active duty orders as reported in DEERS.
Spouses of Guard/Reserve members in an Alert, Transition Assistance, or Post Deployment status are not eligible.
Military spouses who are military members themselves are not eligible. Military members have education benefits provided through the Military Voluntary Education Tuition Assistance (TA) Program. Military spouses who are legally separated by state law or court order are also not eligible.
What does MyCAA Pay for?
MyCAA Financial Assistance (FA) pays for expenses such as secondary and post-secondary education and training programs, tuition, licensing, and credentialing fees. This includes degree programs (e.g. high school, associates, bachelors, masters, doctoral and post-doctoral), continuing education classes (including those offered through professional associations at conferences), Bar, CPA, and other similar exams, state certifications for teachers, medical professionals, and similarly licensed professionals.
