      Bryant & Stratton College Online Named as Military
                       Friendly School
    Only 15 Percent of American Higher Education Institutions Awarded This
  Distinction in the 2013 List Released by Victory Media and G.I. Jobs Magazine

Buffalo, NY, September 26, 2012 - Bryant & Stratton College Online, a premier online
school, is once again on the list of Military Friendly Schools published annually by
Victory Media and G.I. Jobs Magazine. Only 15 percent of U.S. higher education
institutions were named to the 2013 list, which honors the colleges, universities and
trade schools that are doing the most to advance the education of America’s military
service members, veterans and families and their academic success. The list
highlights schools with world-class programs and policies for student support on
campus, academic accreditation, credit policies, flexibility and other services for
students that are active duty, veterans or family members of military.

“We are honored to once again be on the list of Military Friendly Schools and to be
recognized for our efforts to serve military students, military spouses and their
families,” said Scott Traylor, Associate Campus Director for Online Education at
Bryant & Stratton College. “We are dedicated to maintaining a high level of
academics and services for all our students, but recognize that often military families
have unique circumstances that require additional support. Through support groups,
online resources and staff dedicated to the needs of military families we strive to
address their specific needs.”

Bryant & Stratton College has a strong reputation with military service members,
veterans and their families, including:

Salute to Spouses
Salute to Spouses is a scholarship program that allows military spouses to receive up
to $6,000 toward online degree programs at Bryant & Stratton College. Since its
launch, Salute to Spouses has expanded, launching a career and education resource
website for military spouses, written and edited by military spouses. For military
spouses pursuing an associate's degree, the scholarship can be combined with
MyCAA benefits, or the scholarship can be applied toward an online bachelor's degree
program at Bryant & Stratton College as well as at selected campuses. Additionally,
eligibility is not limited by pay grade. More information, including the application
form, is available at www.SalutetoSpouses.com.

Military Relations Manager
MAJ (Ret.) Ed Dennis serves as military relations manager at Bryant & Stratton
College Online. Ed's primary role is to provide assistance to service members seeking
information about higher education and to work with branches of the military to help
students understand the opportunities that are available to them through Bryant &
Stratton College Online. Ed started at Bryant & Stratton in July 2010 after recently
retiring from the Army with 21 years of service. His extensive knowledge and first-
hand experience with the armed forces brings invaluable expertise to Bryant &
Stratton about what active-duty and veteran military students need.

Bryant & Stratton College has 18 campuses across New York, Ohio, Virginia and
Wisconsin and offers programs nationwide through its Online Education division. For
information about the specific resources and programs available to active duty
service members, veterans and family members of the military at each of its campus
locations, visit www.bryantstratton.edu for contact information.

The list of Military Friendly Schools was compiled from research and a data-driven
survey of more than 12,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. The rankings also
incorporate a survey from more than 3,000 student veterans. This is the fourth year
for the list, and each year, schools taking the survey are held to a higher standard
over the previous year. The survey results were independently tested by Ernst &
Young LLP based upon the weights and methodology established by G.I. Jobs.
