Credit Due: Increasing Veterans’ Postsecondary Degree Attainment

Veterans are enrolling in postsecondary education institutions in large numbers, most of them with extensive occupational experience. Many colleges use Prior Learning Assessments to award academic credit when the knowledge and skills an individual has gained outside the classroom--including employment, military training and service, civic activities, and volunteer service--can be matched to college-level coursework. Veterans who earn credit for general courses are able to complete their degrees in a shorter period of time, reducing the college bill. In this eCademy session, experts discuss current policy and successful examples to promote credit for prior learning.
