College Credit for Military Service

Rutgers–Camden and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JBMDL) have established a partnership to bring servicemembers the opportunity to pursue their college education while close to home. Rutgers at JBMDL offers bachelor’s degree completion programs for students with associate degrees or approximately two years college. Programs are open to military and civilians.

The office also helps family members receiving military education benefits.
