How to Obtain Credit for Military Service Experience
Credit for service experience may occur in two forms. Use of this credit is based on its appropriateness to the student’s program at Monroe County Community College.
- A student presenting the Registrar’s Office with a DD-214 form showing a minimum of one year of service with the character of discharge being either “honorable” or “general under honorable conditions” will be awarded two semester hours of general elective credit.
- Service personnel, having successfully completed certain approved training courses, may be awarded a limited amount of academic credit once proof of this training has been provided to the Registrar’s Office. MCCC follows the American Council on Education Guide to the evaluation of educational experience in the armed services.
