Coast Guard Afloat Ed Program
Coast Guard Afloat Education Program
The Vincennes University (VU) Coast Guard Afloat Education Program is a joint collaboration between the U.S. Coast Guard and VU. The Program was developed in 2005 to meet the needs of personnel onboard deployed Coast Guard vessels and at Coast Guard Stations ashore, in all areas of the United States and sometimes overseas.
VU works with an individual command to identify what college-level courses will best suit the command. This is determined by providing an unofficial degree plan for each interested student and then identifying which classes will be of most benefit to the largest number of students. A qualified VU instructor will then offer classes, either onboard a deployed vessel or ashore. Courses can be offered: 1) seated, 2) online, or 3) a combination of seated and online.
This unique program allows Coast Guard personnel to complete requirements toward degree programs and update and improve both military and personal skills.
VU offers a cost-effective tuition rate of $250 per credit hour (a three-credit course is $750). There are no application fees or student fees and books are loaned to students in seated classes at no cost.
They might. VU does accept transfer credits from other accredited schools, as long as you received a grade of C or above. You will need to provide an official transcript to VU in order to request a transfer of credits.
Please contact the VU Afloat Education Coordinator, Ann Wells and make arrangements for a Joint Service Transcript evaluation to determine if you are able to transfer credits from Coast Guard training.
