College Catalog: Credit for Prior Learning: Military Learning Experience/Non-Collegiate Sponsored Instruction

Credits may be granted for non-collegiate education, training, and/or occupational experiences as recommended by college faculty, the American Council on Education (ACE), the National College Credit Recommendation Service, or another college-approved organization.

PDCCC will review and award academic credit to an enrolled student who has successfully completed a military training course or program as part of the student’s military service that is applicable to the certificate or degree requirements and is:

  • Recommended for academic credit by a national higher education association that provides academic credit recommendations for military training courses or programs;
  • Noted on the student’s military transcript issued by any of the armed forces of the United States; or
  • Otherwise documented in writing by any of the armed forces of the United States.

Forms necessary for the evaluation of this credit include the DD-214, DD-295, and the Army/American Council of Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS) Record. Individuals interested in receiving credit for work training should contact their program advisor and the Office of Admissions and Records. The program advisor will attach an Application for Course Credit Form to the PONSI’s course credit recommendation and forward it to the appropriate Division Dean for approval or disapproval.
