Turn your military skills into a rewarding career.

Many members of the military have found their ideal fit at Charter College, both for their post-secondary education and their own career goals. At Charter College, we enroll many veterans and active service members, as well as their dependents. A number of veterans have also chosen to build their post-military careers at Charter College as instructors.

There are several reasons why Charter College is such a good match for military personnel and their dependents, including our program flexibility, a professional and structured learning environment, and highly relevant education programs. Whether you are looking to expand on the skills you developed in the military, or begin a new career, Charter College has the career-focused programs to get you where you want to be tomorrow.

Veterans and Military Tuition Assistance Benefits

Charter College offers many programs eligible for education benefits through the GI Bill® and Military Tuition Assistance programs. For a complete listing of approved programs by State, please visit Charter College Locations/Programs/Tuition & Fees. The college provides education benefits to both veterans, active duty, dependents, National Guard, and Reservists. Education benefits may vary based on the type of service and length of time in the military.

In order to determine eligibility, all students seeking to using veteran’s or Tuition Assistant benefits will be scheduled to meet with a representative from the Financial Aid Office. The representative will assist students in completing all required forms needed to secure the education benefit. A review of transcript will also take place during this meeting. Students with previous post-secondary education must request transcripts and have them evaluated for possible transfer credit.

The Forever GI Bill – Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act was signed into law August 2017. The Forever GI Bill offers significant changes to veterans’ education benefits, including eliminating the previous 15-year time limit for veterans who left active duty on or after January 1, 2013. The Forever GI Bill requires applicants to have 90 days of active duty after September 10, 2001. Find out more at
