Veteran Admission and Military Credit

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions collects and reviews the academic course work of those who earned post-secondary credit while serving in the armed forces.  Post-secondary credit is defined as credit earned by means of successful completion of a college-level course at a regionally accredited college or university, including the CCAF.  In compliance with Texas Education Code 51.3042, eligible former members of the military who are admitted or readmitted as an undergraduate student will be awarded two hours of physical education credit and an additional 12 hours of “military education” credit, which may be applied to satisfy any elective requirement.

The two hours of physical education credit will be awarded by Undergraduate Admissions upon receipt of Form DD-214 as long as the following can be verified: two years of active military duty, the student graduated from an accredited high school or equivalent, and the student is an honorably discharged member of the military who completed at least two years of service or was discharged because of a disability. The student must also submit an official high school transcript. Other military course work may be considered for transfer credit upon receipt of these acceptable forms of documentation:

  1. JST (Joint Services Transcript): Army, Coast Guard, Navy
  2. CCAF Transcript (Community College of the Air Force)
     

The Office of Undergraduate Admission grants credits for lower- and upper-division course work but not for graduate-level work.  Transfer credit is subject to approval by the student’s major department/ school.  For information on how and when to apply for admission, please visit Veteran Admission Services.
