Grantham University

Founded in 1951 by WWII veteran Donald Grantham, Grantham University is proud of its nearly 70-year history of educating all kinds of heroes — parents, military, first responders – with quality education to move up the ranks or into the civilian workforce.

Today, Grantham’s tradition of service is stronger than ever – with flexible deployment policies, a staff trained on military education benefits and a virtual classroom that moves when you do. Already TA, VA and MyCAA approved, Grantham can even help shorten your time to graduation by up to 75 percent, thanks to low tuition rates that stretch your military education funding further, and transfer credit for military training and experience.   

Our 50+ online programs cover diverse fields of study, from criminal justice, technology and healthcare degrees and certificates, to our top-rated MBA and business programs. And with specialized accreditation from leading organizations, like IACBE, PMI and ABET, we are known for quality excellence.
