Approved Courses and Transfer Credit for Military Students

Cambridge College participates in the Department of Defense Voluntary Education Partnership program so that eligible active duty service members are able to obtain Tuition Assistance from their military branch as administered by the Department of Defense. The Registrar, Regional Center Directors and the Student Financial Services Office serve as the first point of contact for veterans' educational benefits assistance and DoD tuition assistance.

Cambridge College certifies enrollment for veterans’ educational benefits for students in degree-seeking programs. All students eligible to receive veterans' benefits or DoD tuition assistance while attending the College are urged to complete arrangements with the appropriate agency in advance of enrollment.

Cambridge College is required to certify only those courses that meet minimum graduation requirements. Courses not directly related to a student's degree program or courses beyond those required for a specific degree program are not certified. Undergraduates should meet with an advisor to develop a course enrollment plan. Graduate students should have their program chair approve their study list as meeting graduation requirements on a semester basis.

To comply with federal regulations concerning credit for previous training (38 CFR 21.4253), Cambridge College is required to evaluate all previous education and training completed elsewhere to determine what credit, if any, should be granted to students eligible to receive Veterans Affairs educational benefits or DoD tuition assistance. Cambridge College is required to complete an evaluation; credit is granted when appropriate. Credit is evaluated toward the degree program registered with Veterans Affairs or DoD as determined by the Office of the University Registrar in conjunction with the relevant academic department(s) or program(s). All relevant policies regarding transfer credit apply. In addition, this evaluation occurs each time a student's degree program is changed. Subject to current federal and College guidelines, students eligible for receipt of VA educational benefits or DoD tuition assistance have their prior education and training evaluated up to the credit limits outlined in the College’s Transfer Policy.
