CPL: Section 9-Credit Earned from Military Training and Courses


 

Credits Earned from Military Training

General Information

NOVA recognizes that a student’s military training, courses and occupational specialty may all be considered for college credit. Military affiliated students whether they are current or former Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, or Navy personnel can submit their Joint Services Transcript (JST) for evaluation of credit.

The Office of Military and Veteran Services recognizes the JST and credits may be granted for military training and skills 1) that are applicable to the student’s degree program as recommended, 2) if the recommendation to grant academic credit is for a course or courses that are taught at NOVA, and 3) if awarding of academic credit is recommended by following entities:

Note: Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) is accredited, so credit may be transferred directly for courses shown on the CCAF transcript.

Military Transcript Evaluation

To receive credit for military training, a student must submit a military transcript and a military evaluation request form (NOVA Form125-349E) for evaluation. Each branch of service has its own transcript request procedure. Once the transcript and evaluation request forms are received, credits that are applicable to the student’s chosen program will be posted. After credits are posted, students will receive an email via their NOVA account to confirm the transaction. Also, please note that students seeking to apply evaluated military credits to courses at the Medical Education Campus (MEC) should contact a MEC counselor for more information about the applicability of those credits.

To begin the military transcript evaluation process the student must do the following:

  • Apply to NOVA and submit military evaluation request form (NOVA Form 125-349E)
  • Request an official military transcript for ARMY/NAVY/MARINES/COAST GUARD: request official Joint Services Transcript at https://jst.doded.mil.
  • Transcripts will automatically be sent electronically to NOVA’s Office of Military Services. Please note that military credit from the Air Force is evaluated by the Central Records Office. Please request Community College of the Air Force Transcripts at https://www.airuniversity.af.edu/Barnes/CCAF.
  • Allow 4-6 weeks for the transcript evaluation process to be completed.
Military Course Equivalencies

Military training and skills should be equivalent to NOVA courses. If a service member has questions regarding training-related credits versus their degree requirement applicability, he or she should contact the program division for more information about possible course substitutions. Military training credit in career-technical areas that is 10 or more years old and is to be applied toward graduation in the career technical area, must be approved by the appropriate academic dean. In cases of conflict, course requirements as stated in the NOVA College Catalog supersede any other requirements.

Credits 2 Careers (C2C) Veterans Portal

C2C is a personalized virtual counseling tool that will provide military-connected users to instantly get an estimate of potential credits from your Military education, experience, and training. The estimate serves as a recommendation of the possible courses one can earn credit for.  NOVA military transcript evaluators will perform a separate evaluation after all the required documents are provided to determine your actual course credit.  Access the Credits2Careers Veterans portal at: https://www.credits2careers.org.

Military Basic Training

Students who have completed basic training may receive credit for PED 116 (and a PED elective if it is required by the student’s program) and only if the course is listed in the student’s military transcript or DD214.  Students may request a military transcript from https://jst.doded.mil.  If a service member finds that their records need to be corrected, it is the responsibility of the service member to contact the JST regarding corrections to their service records. Individuals can make updates and corrections to their service records or JST transcripts at https://jst.doded.mil/correction.html.

Joint Cyber Analysis Course (JCAC) in Information Technology

Credit may be given for the six-month Joint Cyber Analysis course taken by service members in multiple branches of the military. Due to the nature of this field, training must have been completed within the past five years. A partial list of IT specific credit for military personnel who have completed the required courses appears below. For a more detailed list please contact NOVA’s Office of Military Services.
