Credit for Military Experience

Students who have completed any United States military training should request that an Academic Advisor discuss other types of non-institutional experience, such as military, business or government, which may qualify for credit. The Academic Advisor will make a preliminary evaluation of military training and service school records for possible credit. Recommendations will be considered by the home school or college for possible application to the degree program.
