AMERICAN MILITARY - Experience to College Credit

AMERICAN MILITARY - Experience To College Credit

I am retired Navy (22yrs), Vietnam Vet, and in my Military experience was a asset.  Looks like that has changed.

"Turning soldiers into scholars by turning military experience into college credit" PBS NewsHour 10/23/2018

Excerpt


SUMMARY:  Despite years leading troops and managing equipment on the front lines, soldiers returning to school may have to start from the beginning, alongside teenagers who have never held a similar level of responsibility.  Now, a new Colorado law awards college credit for military experience--and requires that the state's schools accept it.  Hari Sreenivasan reports.

Hari Sreenivasan (NewsHour):  This year, Colorado legislators embraced Pikes Peak's model by passing legislation to help all Colorado military and veteran students.

Colorado's new law says any state-funded institution has to be able to evaluate the knowledge or skills that a student might have picked up in the military.  And if that student can earn credit for it, those credits have to be transferable to every state institution.
