Credit for Military Training
- Students who have completed at least 24 months of active military service may be granted a maximum of 10 credit hours. These credits are awarded as 3 credit hours which satisfy general education HLTH SS1030 and 7 elective credit hours.
- Students who have completed four or more years in the National Guard or a reserve unit will be awarded HLTH SS130 and 7 elective credit hours.
- Additional credit may be granted for military schooling if specific requirements are met. (Credit may be awarded as elective credit. Certain credits may also be articulated as equivalent to WSU coursework, if applicable.)
- To receive credit students should submit military form DD-214 and/or Joint Services Transcript (JST) to the Records Office to start the process.
- Military credit will be evaluated only if it can be applied to a legitimate undergraduate degree program. Students who already have a bachelor's degree are not eligible for a military credit evaluation.
- Military credit is added to a student's total credit hours completed, and may reduce a student's eligibility for financial aid.
- Students must meet with an academic advisor for their major to discuss how military credit can be applied to their program of study. This must occur before military credit can be awarded, in compliance with with Utah law www.le.utah.gov/code/TITLE53B/htm/53B16_010700.htm.
- After discussing military credit with their academic advisor, students must submit the Application for Military Credit for DD124 and JST transcripts, which can be found here.
