Military Service Credit


Credit for military service & Transfer credit

9 quarter units of elective credit will be allowed toward a baccalaureate degree for a student with an honorable discharge from the military services of the United States who submits evidence of satisfactory completion of at least one year of active military service.  4 of the 9 quarter units will be applied toward General Education Area E upon successful completion of ENG 110, ENG 109 or ENG 107 (or the equivalent).

An additional 13 ½ quarter units of elective credit will be allowed toward graduation to any student submitting evidence of receiving a commission in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, or Marine Corps.  Credit is not given for completion of the six-month reserve training programs or for college level general educational development tests.

Credit for specific courses may be allowed if the student has satisfactorily completed equivalent study in a military service school. The guidelines of the American Council on Education are followed in determining eligibility and approval must be granted by the department teaching the specific course for which credit is sought.

Articulation agreements for military courses with American Council on Education (ACE) credit recommendations are published through the Transfer Evaluation System here:  http://www.cpp.edu/~registrar/transfer-credit/tes.shtml.  The articulation agreements specify specific course credit to be awarded for certain courses taken while in the military.  To receive credit, student veterans must first submit an official military transcript to the Registrar's Office.  Veteran students may be eligible for additional course credit.  For more information, please read the Transfer Credit Guide for Veterans.
