  • Special Thanks

  • Overview

    The mission of the Multi-State Collaborative on Military Credit (MCMC) is to facilitate an interstate partnership of 13 states, and to translate competencies acquired by veterans through military training and experiences toward college credentials. States will exchange information and share best practices in the areas of articulation of credit, certification and licensure, communication, and data and technology.

  • Project Goals To assist student veterans with completing postsecondary

    education and the transition into civilian employment, MCMC has established the following three goals:

    1. Assist with critical life transitions from the military to postsecondary education and then from postsecondary education to civilian employment.

    2. Increase postsecondary education completion rates by creating models for the consistent, transparent, and effective awarding of credit for military training and experience that can be scaled regionally and nationally, thereby lowering the cost of education and reducing the time to completion.

    3. Establish a strong network of support, communication, documentation, and data collection among institutions and organizations for the purpose of promoting shared interests and tracking the efficacy of efforts to enhance Servicememberseducational success.
