ACHS Military Funding

As a military-friendly institution, ACHS makes it easy for U.S. Armed Forces servicemembers, military spouses, and veterans to maximize their education benefits and invest in their future with career training in holistic health.

In response to this commitment, the American College of Healthcare Sciences has been reocognized among the top military friendly institutions for seven years in a row.

Our military students: 

  • Enjoy one-on-one follow up from their academic advisor and instructors;
  • Share in the post-secondary educational opportunities available to other citizens;
  • Are provided with appropriately accredited educational programs, courses, and services; and
  • Receive enhanced access to ACHS courses through flexible programs and procedures, including admissions, counseling, credit transfer, scheduling, and the ACHS online course format.

The Yellow Ribbon Program

ACHS is a proud participant in the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program.

From the VA Official Website: "The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate."

ACHS has committed to contributing up to 50% of these expenses, and the VA will match the same amount.
