The board of education recognizes that service members acquire knowledge and skills during military duty. Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, the technology center will award appropriate educational credit in its education programs consistent with the training and experience earned by military personnel.
In order to be considered for an award of education credit at the technology center, an applicant must have received an other than dishonorable discharge from the United States Armed Forces within three (3) years from the date of enrollment at the technology center.
The career advisor or counselor, with input from the instructor, is authorized to compare the applicant’s education, training and experience with the requirements of the applicant’s proposed program of study. The applicant is responsible for supplying the requisite information and records essential to any award of credit. The technology center shall utilize the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services (published by the American Council on Education) to make this analysis and determine appropriate credit to be awarded. The process of awarding credit for military experience shall be conducted in a manner similar to the review process for transfer of education credits earned at another institution. The decision of the technology center regarding an award of credit is a final decision that is not subject to appeal.
