Why attend Adler Graduate School

Because of our online programs, military members may take classes wherever they are stationed and complete the residency requirements while on leave. Internship obligations for therapy training can also occur wherever the member may be and students can Skype into supervision classes to cover their Field Experience hours. Each class is 5 weeks long and is asynchronous so no need to be anywhere at a specific time as long as each assignment is completed in within 72 hours. So it is very convenient for military members.
