Consistent with Florida Board of Governors Regulation 6.013, Military Veterans and Active Duty, students who are or were members of the United States Armed Forces may earn appropriate academic college credit for college-level training and education acquired in the military. College credit will be granted to students with military training and coursework that is recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE), subject to institution transfer practices and limitations on amount, level, etc., of transfer credit. Military training coursework will be subject to the same treatment as any other transfer credit evaluated, with the utilization of the ACE Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services or determining equivalency and alignment of military coursework with applicable University courses. If the coursework fulfills a general education, major course, and/or degree requirement, consistent with the college/department policy, the credit will be granted for meeting that requirement toward graduation. Applicable course credit may include elective course credit toward the degree.
To apply for such credit, military veterans or active duty service members should submit one of the following forms of documentation and evidence of appropriate test scores on the DSST Examination Program (formerly DANTES Subject Standardized Tests) in college and technical subjects.
