Using a Blended Learning curriculum — that combines in-class learning with online studies — and the flexibility of day or evening classes, students can complete programs on an accelerated schedule. Programs are offered in healthcare, business, veterinary science, information technology, aviation and select trade careers. Charter operates campuses in five states, and offers certificates, associate and bachelor's degree, as well as online master’s. 100% online programs are available for select programs.

History[edit]

Charter College was founded in 1985 by Doctor Milton Byrd, former Provost at Florida International University and President of Chicago State University with a campus in Anchorage, Alaska. In the more than 30 years since they opened their doors, Charter has opened campuses in 14 additional cities and has added online degree programs, as well.

In 2016, Charter Institute was developed to bring the Charter education approach to New Mexico.
