As a distance learner or prospective online student, you know the universal advantages of virtual education—flexibility, lower costs, etc. But in addition to those benefits and unlike many other online universities, Grantham offers an array of tools and resources to support students both in and out of our online classrooms. The best part? These resources are all web-based and can be accessed anytime, anywhere.
If you’re struggling in your classes, the logical thing to do is seek tutoring or other outside help. But many students fear that the cost of a tutor or the time and travel they require will put tutoring out of reach.
That’s where Tutor.com comes in. All Grantham students get 24/7 access to one-on-one tutoring sessions in available classes. These sessions are available on demand or scheduled in advance so you can get the personalized help you need whenever you need it. Tutor.com coaches are ready to guide you through all of your questions in math, science, business, language and more.
Online financial aid
Grantham is committed to making education remarkably affordable, which is why we offer resources to help students navigate the financial aid process. With FATV (Financial Aid TV), students, prospective students and alumni can watch short videos that answer the most common financial aid questions. FATV covers school-related topics like scholarships, FAFSA and loan repayment options in addition to personal finance info like money management and identity theft.
Online writing assistance
Get help with written assignments in Grantham’s Writing Center, which provides a variety of self-service resources and tutorials about APA Style, grammar, organization and more. You’ll also find tools from Grammarly.com that will recognize and correct spelling, grammar and punctuation errors and even check your work for plagiarism.
It’s important for everyone to stay on top of their finances, of course, but it’s especially important for students. We recommended Mint, a handy tool that can help you by keeping track of your spending, savings and debt. Mint’s user-friendly interface can be accessed on any mobile device to help you build a budget, categorize your spending by type and keep an eye on your savings all in one place. Mint will also send you alerts if you have a low balance or unpaid bills, helping you avoid overspending or incurring unnecessary fees.
Online military-to-civilian transition guides
Separating from the military lifestyle and launching a civilian career can be a challenging process. A successful transition doesn’t happen overnight—it requires plenty of planning, training and forethought. Grantham’s military-to-civilian transition guide series is available to veteran and active duty military students, covering everything from military assistance programs to organizing your military training into a standout resume.
