American Red Cross Blood Services & Charter Oak State College

American Red Cross

Charter Oak State College is pleased to partner with American Red Cross, part of the world's largest humanitarian network and also the largest supplier of blood and blood products.

In addition, if you are an employee of the American Red Cross Blood Services division, you may have already earned up to 27 college credits for the Collections Staff Training Program or up to 31 college credits for the Product Manufacturing Training Program! This means you may have already completed a big part of the credit requirements for an Associate or Bachelor's degree; about a year's worth of full-time college. It's a head start that can save you time and money in completing your degree.

Even if you don’t have this training, you may be able to get college credit for military training or EMT, RN, LPN, or phlebotomy credentials, just to name a few.

All eligible employees of Red Cross can access the benefits of our partnership.
  • 10% discount on tuition for any course toward a certificate, Associate, Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.

In order to help serve Red Cross employees better, please let us know you work for the Red Cross. You can do this by telling our staff when you call or by identifying your employer as American Red Cross on the application.
