FDTC awards credit for select formal military coursework and training. Under agreement with the Service Members Opportunity Colleges (SOC), the college may grant credit for military education and experience that has been evaluated and recommended as suitable for postsecondary education credit by the American Council on Education. FDTC awards credit only for military education and experience that relate directly to courses taught by the college. Students must request official military transcripts from the appropriate military service. Academic department heads assist with the review of establishing course credit equivalencies by referring to the ACE Guide. The college awards credit only for coursework in the student’s current or proposed major.
It is the responsibility of the veteran to provide official transcripts from all military and colleges attended. These mandatory official transcripts should be sent to the Registrar's Office for evaluation as early as possible. An evaluation of all college and military transcripts must be completed by the end of the second semester in a new program of study.
Failure to provide college and military transcripts may cause delays in benefit processing and, possibly, a duplication of benefits. The student will be responsible for reimbursing the VA if a duplication of benefits occurs.
