Hood College President Andrea Chapdelaine and COL Scott Halter, Commander at Fort Detrick executed the Memorandum of Understanding during a public event hosted by Hood's Graduate School and attended by university and army officials and personnel. Hood College and the Army Continuing Education System worked together to bring this latest partnership to action.
“One of the things that I think is most important is that we need to do is to provide an educational pathway for our active military as we thank them for their service,” said Hood College president, Andrea Chapdelaine.
The college will hold advising sessions on site, and all qualified army personnel enrolled will received a reduction per tuition credit of 40 to 60 percent depending on the graduate program.
"This partnership allows us to lower the financial burden while still achieving a great result,” said Col. Scott Halter, Commander of U.S. Army Garrison Fort Detrick.
Hood College and Fort Detrick have a long relationship of working together in the area of education.
