Academic Credit for Prior Military Training

To support Virginia’s veterans, the Virginia Community College System may award academic credit towards a certificate or degree for military experience and training. Each community college has its own procedures and processes to evaluate experience and training. In 2017, the Virginia Community College System will launch a veterans’ portal, which shows how college credit is awarded for military experience. With over 800,000 veterans in Virginia, connecting military education and training in IT and cybersecurity to postsecondary education credentials is important to ensuring the Commonwealth’s cybersecurity workforce.
