Columbia Basin College recognizes learning acquired in the military by accepting the credit recommendations of the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services. In addition, a student may earn credits awarded by institutions listed in the ACE National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Program and the Directory of the National Program on Non-collegiate Sponsored Instruction, provided that the courses are at the college level. Only those courses actually listed in these directories which have been approved for a specific period of time and which correspond to the actual time the student completed the course will be acceptable as college credit. Other non-collegiate training will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Credits will be evaluated only from official transcripts requested by the student from the American Council on Education’s Registry of Credit Recommendations from the organization that provided the training. Military credits will be evaluated only from official military documents. Official military transcripts must be received by the end of the student's second quarter.
A maximum of three Physical Education credits will be awarded for physical conditioning and all other military credit is limited to a 15-credit maximum in the restricted electives for the Associate in Arts and Sciences degree.
A list of military training courses and programs that qualify for academic credit and that articulate to Columbia Basin College courses are available here. Military courses and training not listed on the course crosswalk will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
