“For a long time, no schools offering degrees in digital arts or photography were recognized by the Army Education program. While working through my Digital Arts Certificate program I found out about the Sessions Bridge Program, which allowed me to transfer classes from my certificate to my Associates program. The staff and military liaisons have been phenomenal in their response times and assistance.”
