Educational opportunities exist to further your military career or prepare for a civilian career, whether you are active duty or retired, stateside, or abroad. You may be eligible to receive credit for your military training and prior learning experiences that have been evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE).  College credit for prior military training and experience may be awarded.  The standards of the American Council on Education or equivalent standards and current HTC transfer policy will be used to determine course transfer.
