Course Equivalencies:

Some military training can be used for college credit.

For Military Science Credit: Some military training can be used for college credit. Once you obtain your military transcripts, you’ll need to take them to the Registrar's Office.  It may then take up to five business days before your equivalencies can be determined.

For military experience that may be relevant to your major transcripts can be taken to the Department Chair for your major. The Department Chair will evaluate whether or not credit can be granted on a case by case basis, and will then contact Hannah Ledger in the Office of the Registrar.

The Virginia Wounded Warrior Program

"Our statewide program serves veterans of an era who are Virginia residents; members of the Virginia National Guard and Armed Forces Reserves not in active federal service; and family members of those veterans and service members. Through an extensive network of local, federal and state partnerships, the VWWP can assist you in getting the answers you need regarding psychological health and traumatic brain injury." - excerpt from "About Us" on website
