Turn Your Military Experience into College Credit!

重点大学 awards credit toward a degree based on military training and coursework and evaluates students’ military experience for transfer credit. 立博平台进行信用评估.

We understand that frequent relocations and deployment can make it difficult for 退伍军人, 家属, 预备役人员, and active duty military students to pursue their educational goals. Keystone provides flexibility by offering courses in day, evening, weekend, and on-line formats that may be blended to create a customized experience to meets your needs.

Freedom to fulfill your military obligations
Your choice to serve should not negatively affect your academic progress at Keystone. Absences resulting from your military service are excused absences. When you need to miss class due to drill or other military obligations, provide a copy of your orders to the 退伍军人核证官员 and your instructors will be notified. They will then work individually with you to make up any missed work.

If you are called to active duty or ordered to another military obligation that will result in your need to temporarily stop attending classes for the remainder of a semester, 你应该联络 退伍军人核证官员 who will assist you with completing a Leave of Absence for Military Service which guarantees your ability to resume your studies once your active service is completed. The 退伍军人核证官员 will assist you with both initiating your leave and resuming your studies.
