Submit a completed application and official transcripts to Charter Oak along with a non-refundable application fee of $50. Applicants who do not have at least 9 college level credits must submit a high school transcript or equivalent.

  • Request official transcripts from each school where you’ve attempted to earn credit. Include college transcripts, military records and standardized exams from CLEP or DSST. If you do not have college-level credit, you will need to have your official High School or GED transcript sent directly to Charter Oak.

Contact your admission counselor for enrollment instructions.

The My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) Scholarship Program is a workforce development program that provides up to $4,000 of financial assistance to eligible military spouses who are pursuing a license, certification or Associate’s degree in a portable career field and occupation.

If you have at least 90 days of aggregate active duty service after Sept. 10, 2001, and are still on active duty, or if you are an honorably discharged Veteran or were discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days, you may be eligible for this VA-administered program. Learn More at the Veteran's Benefit Administration website.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill will pay you:

  • all resident tuition & fees for a public school
  • the lower of the actual tuition & fees or the national maximum per academic year for a private school

Your actual tuition & fees costs may exceed these amounts if you are attending a private school or are attending a public school as a nonresident student.

Institutions of Higher Learning (Degree Granting Institutions) may elect to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill entitlement.

Degree-granting institutions of higher learning participating in the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program agree to make additional funds available for your education program without an additional charge to your GI Bill entitlement. These institutions voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with VA and choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. VA matches that amount and issues payments directly to the institution. Learn More at the Veteran's Benefit Administration website.
