Military Experience

Students can receive academic credits for experience and knowledge gained through military participation.  Credits will be conferred based on ACE credit recommendations, in consultation with academic departments.  Academic credit for military experience will be limited to 25% of total credits required for degree/certificate completion.  The Credential Evaluations Department will process all incoming military credits.  Students should consult with the Veteran’s Affairs Department to discuss options related to applying military credits to their degree plan. How and when credits are applied may affect GI Bill funding.


Note: Students intending to transfer with an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science-Transfer degree should consult with the Admissions Office at the baccalaureate institution of their choice for information on military credit policies. Not all institutions recognize military credit posted to the Clark College transcript.


Please contact the Veterans Affairs Office for more information.
