Credit for Military Service
Students who have served on Active Duty for at least one year in the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard or Space Force may be awarded six semester units of credit. Three of these units will satisfy the Lifelong Learning and Self-Development (AREA E) requirement for an Associate degree, one unit will apply to the physical activity requirement for EVC graduation, and two units are applied toward elective credit.
Submit the following required documents in order to assess credit for military education:
- Joint Service Transcripts (JST; Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard, Space Force)
- Community College of the Air Force transcript (CCAF)
- DD-214 (or DD-295 for students still in the military) --up to (6) units
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 (ACE).
