Transfer College Credits and Military Experience

If you have qualifying credits from previous colleges you’ve attended, or if you have qualifying military experience, you could save up to 75% of the time and cost of your associate’s or bachelor’s degree or 25% of your master’s degree.

“We’ve geared all of our degree programs really to be not only career-specific, but to be focused on that adult learner who’s coming back to school and needs additional support, needs focused curriculum, needs career-specific curriculum, rather than a lot of electives that may not really add any value to their future career.”

– Eric Juhlin
President of Stevens Henager College


Ways to Transfer Your Experience

The following are just a handful of the ways you can earn college credit at Stevens-Henager College and save on the time and cost of your degree:

Credits from another college

Why take the same classes over again? If you’ve gone to college before, chances are you have some credits that could potentially transfer to one of our programs. Find out how many credits you can transfer today!

Defense Activities for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES)

Did you know that your military experience could translate into college credit? Stevens-Henager College and DANTES will work with you to see if any of your military experience qualifies for college credit.

College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Because of your military knowledge and experience, you may be able to test out of some college courses completely! Testing or “CLEPing” out of classes could save you significant time and money on tuition and fees.

Advanced Placement (AP) courses

Did you take any advanced placement or college credit courses in high school? If so, you could possibly transfer those credits to one of our career-focused degree programs.

College-recognized certifications (i.e., Cisco, Microsoft, A+, etc.)

Do you have any professional certifications that you earned through your military service or on your own? Believe it or not, your certifications could possibly transfer into your college degree program.

Competency examination

If you’ve already learned something, you shouldn’t have to learn it again. Depending on your past military or civilian experience, you may have developed superior competencies in a number of areas that could translate into college credit.
Certain restrictions apply. Speak with a military admissions consultant today to find out if your previous college credits or military experience can be transferred to Stevens-Henager College.
