ASSOCIATE DEGREES


Global Equine Academy has contracted with Dickinson State University to meet the needs of our students, who want to get an associates degree and to receive government financial aid. DSU is accredited through North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), which is the most widely accepted accreditation for colleges. DSU is approved to offer federal financial aid. If a school does not offer federal financial aid they are probably not accredited.

Student Testimonial:
Hello Gene and Sandy,
This will be the last class I take, graduation is sneaking right up! I just wanted to thank both of you for the absolutely amazing job you have done with this class. I have learned SO much, and I will take so much with me for my future! I could not have asked for two better instructors for this class! For being an online class, I don't feel for one minute that I have missed out on something that may have been presented in an everyday face-to-face class. I will definitely spread the word of the great classes offered by the GEA....Thank you again for all that you have done! I will be keeping in touch!! Maybe I could make it down to Wyoming sometime and meet you! Best of luck in your training of horses and teaching to come!
Have a safe trip back to WY!
