TRANSFER OF PRIOR CREDIT
Students using VA benefits are required to have all military credit and previous college course work evaluated toward their current MCC program. This evaluation will include any courses(s) taken at an approved educational institution, even if the course(s) was not paid for by VA. An official military transcript and academic transcript(s) from all prior schools should be sent to the MCC's Records Office for this evaluation (see below).
HOW DO I SUBMIT A MILITARY TRANSCRIPT / TRANSCRIPT FROM A PRIOR COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY?
To submit a transcript from a prior college or university, visit the MCC Submit a Transcript webpage for submission address and email.
CREDIT FOR MILITARY SERVICE
MCC seeks to grant the most credit possible for military training and experience. Military students who submit a military transcript JST (Joint Services Transcript) are granted up to 3.5 credits in Physical Education (PHED) for basic training. Additional credit hours may be awarded for military training and experience as recommended by the American Council on Education.
Some factors may limit the number of credits accepted, including departmental accreditation and program-specific requirements. Credits not transferred as a specific class at MCC may be applied to either the major or general education requirements as undefined electives. Veterans and military students pursuing specialized programs that have very few or no electives may find that they receive limited credits from their military experience.
Documents eligible for transcript evaluation can include CCAF Transcript (Community College of the Air Force), JST (Joint Services Transcript), and other official documents indicating military experience. In addition, MCC accepts DSST (DANTES) and CLEP scores.
Use of military credits to transfer from MCC to another institution depends on a number of factors, including whether the institution has a transfer credit agreement with MCC. The institution receiving transfer courses makes the decision regarding award of transfer credit. Military students should evaluate their transfer options carefully in consultation with the receiving institution. For additional information on military transfer credits, contact MCC’s Veterans Center.
