Servicemembers Degree Program
The Servicemembers Degree Program is an external degree program, developed mainly for the military. It allows members of the military--either active or reserve--to complete an associate's degree using their military experience and training for up to 45 of the 60 (or more) credits required for the degree.
Military training and experience is evaluated by using the college credit recommendations of the American Council on Education. Those credits are then applied to the degree program chosen by the student. The remainder of the credits for the degree may be earned by taking appropriate courses at MCCC or any other accredited college or university.
This program is not affiliated with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
