Credit for Military Service
Students who have completed a minimum of 185 days of active duty in the United States Armed Forces may receive two units of credit for Physical Education, two units for Health Education, and two units for Military Service after submitting a copy of their Discharge (DD214). Additional units, for certain military technical schools, may be granted upon evaluation of the student’s American Council on Education Registry Transcript.
Veterans receiving VA benefits must file the DD-214 with the Office of Veterans Affairs and complete an application for benefits prior to certification. Credit granted for military schools is based upon recommendation of the American Council on Education.
For more information please contact the Veterans Coordinator in the Office of Admissions and Records, or by calling (408) 270-6430, or visit the website at https://www.evc.edu/current-students/support-programs/veterans-freedom-center.
