AT&T Badge Participation Details
Regardless of what program you are interested in you must apply for admission; the admission requirements are different for the AT&T Cybersecurity Badges than for the Champlain College Online undergraduate and graduate programs. Students admitted to an AT&T Badge who would like to continue on for a certificate, bachelor's degree or master's degree must also complete the application process for their new program of interest.
The Badges are built specifically for AT&T and are only available to AT&T employees. However, the courses are the same offered in our Cybersecurity bachelor's degree and certificate programs; they are rigorous, there will be students in the classes who do not work for AT&T, and if you decide to continue on from the badge the courses will transfer seamlessly into the Champlain College Online Cybersecurity certificate or bachelor's degree.
Courses in the badge programs require certain prerequisite knowledge and must be demonstrated via review by the Champlain College Online Cybersecurity Program Chair. This includes consideration of prior work history via résumé, related industry certifications, completed badge courses, etc. AT&T employees who do not demonstrate mastery of prerequisite course content must complete the additional courses prior to taking the required badge courses.
Financing The Badge
AT&T will reimburse students for badge courses following course completion, on a course‐by‐course basis, and based on the cost per credit hour that is applicable at the time the course is taken. Champlain College will bill prior to the start of the semester and will follow the Champlain College Online standard refund policies. Students will have the option to pay in full or in monthly installments. See the truED tuition page for more information regarding cost per credit and payment options. Please speak with your supervisor at AT&T regarding reimbursement specifics.
Champlain College Degree or Certificate Programs
AT&T students who would like to learn more about our 60+ online programs should visit the Degrees & Certificates section of this site. The truED tuition savings is available not only for the badge programs, but also the undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs offered 100% online by Champlain College.
Students who complete the badges and wish to continue into one of our Cybersecurity certificate or degree programs must apply separately for those programs. Upon application, prior work history, certifications and of course success in the badge courses are reviewed and transfer credit toward the program may be awarded as appropriate. Employees who are accepted into a certificate or degree program (not the badge programs) enroll as matriculated Champlain College Online students and will continue to enjoy the benefits of the truED alliance between Champlain and AT&T.
