Making Military Learning Count for Academic Credit

Making Military Training Count – The Office of the Governor and the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs, in cooperation with the Illinois Community College Board, several community colleges, the Illinois Board of Higher Education and MyCreditsTransfer, completed a collaborative project to grant student veterans appropriate academic credit for the education and training they gained in military service. 

As a result of the “Making Military Training Count” initiative, veterans and servicemembers can enter college with earned course credits, useful credits that apply toward meeting degree requirements, simply by documenting their already-completed military training.  See how your military coursework, exams, and/or learning experiences count at specific schools using Transferology™.  Visit www.iTransfer.org/MyCreditsTransfer to learn more.  You can also find out what your options are for taking classes at another school to transfer back to your current school by using the "Find a Replacement Course" feature.

Many Illinois colleges have developed transfer credit for military learning experience, including City Colleges of Chicago, College of DuPage, College of Lake County, DePaul University, Kaskaskia College and Southwestern Illinois College.
