Your Recruits CHS Bridge Program

The appearance of DoD imagery does not constitute or imply DoD endorsement


This overview is designed to help your recruit successfully build out the remaining courses needed to complete their high school diploma and join the U.S. Military.


Each student needs are different. Some will need 1 or 2 courses to complete their bridge while others may need 5, 6, or 7 courses to complete theirs. The length of time needed to complete their bridge will depend on the number of courses, the difficulty of the courses, their life position and their desire and time to complete their diploma and join the military.

It's all about the recruit

This bridge program is coordinated by a single person the recruit! The CHS Admissions Specialist, you as a recruiter, family and friends can assist them, but the recruit is the one person who will pick the courses and decide how and when to complete them.

What Courses Do They Need To Build Their Course Bridge

When your recruit meets with their CHS Admissions Specialist, they will inform them of the number and type of courses they will need to reach the 18-credit requirement to be awarded the CHS Career Diploma. The below example shows the CHS courses required in blue, courses accepted in yellow, and the Bridge Courses the recruit will need to take to complete their diploma in green.

Choosing their Bridge Courses

If your recruit is lacking any English course, they must complete the English Course recommended by the Admissions Specialist, but in all other subject categories they have a choice of courses. For example, if they need to take a Math, Science or Social Science course, each core subject areas has a variety of courses and topics they can choose from.

To fill their elective courses, students can choose from 100’s of electives in the CHS’s course catalog. In addition, CHS has set aside a set of suggested elective courses specifically to help meet their elective requirement that supports their military career.

Please visit the military catalog for a list of courses.

Transferring Credit to the Recruit's Local High School

To ensure that the CHS credits will transfer, your recruit must complete the Credit Transfer Form, and send it to their high school guidance counselor. 

Provided they meet their school’s transfer credit requirements and successfully complete the CHS course or courses, the recruit’s CHS high school courses should transfer to their local school as acceptable transfer credit. Please note, the acceptance of earned transfer credits is determined by the receiving institution.
