How to Apply
College Credit for Military Service
Rutgers–Camden recognizes military-based training programs for academic credit through our B.A. in liberal studies program. We use the American Council on Education (ACE) college credit recommendations listed on your military transcript to determine college credit equivalencies at Rutgers–Camden.
After you have been accepted for admission, the Office of New Student Programs will review your transcript, determine the number of credits accepted, and decide how the credits will be applied.
Degree Programs at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst
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.
Resources for Veterans
Rutgers–Camden offers a wide range of services through our Office of Veterans Affairs. The office ensures that veterans receive guidance for financial, academic, residential, career, and psychological needs in order to make a successful transition from military life. The office also helps family members receiving military education benefits.
