BERKELEY COLLEGE PARTNERS WITH THE U.S. ARMY TO PROVIDE DISTANCE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ACTIVE DUTY SOLDIERS

Berkeley College is proud to announce that it has partnered with GoArmyEd to provide the opportunity for soldiers to pursue degrees through distance learning no matter where they are stationed. This partnership allows soldiers to use their benefits under the Army Tuition Assistance program to pay for courses.  

The goal of the partnership between Berkeley College and GoArmyEd is to promote both the soldier’s mobile lifestyle and educational goals,” says Assistant Vice President of Military and Veterans Affairs Richard Robitaille, EdD. “Berkeley College offers premier programs in Business and Management and is honored to be able to offer these programs to Soldiers through a long-term, mutually beneficial partnership.”

The degree programs at Berkeley College balance rigorous academics and professional training with hands-on learning, providing students with a competitive edge when they are ready to start their careers. The quarter system allows students to complete their studies more quickly than other colleges. In addition, the Berkeley College/GoArmyEd partnership was built specifically for soldiers whose U.S. Army rating and service schools may have earned them credit that can be applied towards a degree.
