McChord AFB Campus

Higher Education at Joint Base McChord

Located in Tacoma, Washington, the Joint Base Lewis-McChord, is home to UMass Global’s McChord Field campus (formerly Brandman University). This location has offered college degree programs for active military personnel, veterans and their families since 1972. Civilian students are also welcome to further their education but require base clearance. Our classes are offered in a blended format which combines the convenience of online classes with the practical application experience that one gets by attending an on-campus course. Some of our classes hold an on-campus session once a week while all other coursework is done online. Students have the benefit of in-person interactions with professors and classmates without interfering with work schedules.

For answers regarding GI Bill, tuition, financial aid, military transfer of credits and more refer to the admissions section, visit the campus, or call (800) 746-0082.
