Military Experience Credit
MSTC will review military training and experience of former and currently enlisted U.S. military personnel for possible credits toward completion of an Associate Degree or Technical Diploma. Credits may be awarded only toward courses that fulfill a published MSTC graduation requirement or that are an acceptable degree elective at Mid-State Technical College.
The review process will follow the recommendations of the current Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services published by the American Council on Education.
The appropriate academic Division Dean is responsible for the final decision on the recognition of credit for military educational experiences.
