Armed Services Courses

Beal University recognizes the knowledge acquired in military life. Credit is awarded according to the standards established in the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experience in the Armed Services published by the American Council on Education. Please contact the Admissions Office for details.

Veterans Upward Bound

Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) is a federally funded pre-college program that provides assistance, at no-cost, to eligible veterans who wish to pursue a university degree. VUB is designed to develop the academic and personal skills necessary for admission into the post-secondary program of the veteran’s choice.

Credit for Life Experience

We recognize that you may have gained significant experience during your military service. Beal University will consider granting credit in cases where the student can demonstrate that prior learning or experience is equivalent to that in specific university courses. The credit awarded will be based on an assessment of the knowledge, skills, or competencies acquired. Please contact the Admissions Office for guidelines and required documentation.

Career Services

We understand that it may be difficult to translate the specialized skills and training you’ve received in the military so that it means something to prospective employers. As a Beal University student, you’ll have access to our Career Services Coordinator to find ways to effectively market yourself on your resume and in the interview process. This service is free to students and graduates for life.
