Credit for Military Training

Chamberlain recognizes the valuable knowledge, training and experience gained through service.

Students in the Military to BSN Option will take three military-specific courses that bridge the gap between previously gained knowledge, skills and abilities and the expected learning outcomes in the BSN program’s foundational courses.

Upon successful completion, students will receive an additional 13 proficiency credit hours though Chamberlain’s College Military Articulation Plan (CMAP), allowing them to earn their degree in as few as six semesters of full-time study.

Seeing advanced medical procedures right before my eyes motivated me to gain the knowledge and experience to provide a higher level of care. The fatalities I saw in the field solidified my decision to become a nurse.

Financial Benefits & Policies

What is available to me?

Veterans’ Benefits

Students who may qualify for veteran's educational benefits should notify their admission advisor and meet with a student service representative regarding eligibility as far in advance of their scheduled class start date as possible. For the purpose of certifying VA benefits, students are required to submit all transcripts from previously attended institutions. Many Chamberlain locations participate in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, which is available for eligible students utilizing Chapter 33 benefits. GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government web site www.benefits.va.gov/gibill or you can call the VA Education Benefits department at 1-888-GI-BILL-1 (888-442-4551).

Deployment Policy

Chamberlain's deployment policy makes it possible for active duty service members, reserve, and National Guard students deployed or participating in required training for more than 14 consecutive days to attend school without worrying about the "what ifs." If you need to deploy or experience a permanent change station (PCS) during the semester simply fill out the Deployment Form and contact your Student Services Advisor. Your advisor will make sure your paperwork is processed and walk you through any additional steps you need to withdraw from the course without penalty and will help you re-enroll when you are able to do so.

Military Tuition Assistance (TA)

Military Tuition Assistance (TA) may be available to qualifying students actively serving in any of the branches of the military. Students must request payment from their respective branch of service, before they enroll in a class.

Approved tests include the International Baccalaureate Program (IB), Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST).

A student’s military educational history may also be recognized for proficiency credit via an appropriate credit recommendation from the American Council on Education (ACE).
