As a current service-member or veteran, you may be able to advance your status with a Standardized Credit Award. With the assistance of the American Council on Education's guide it is rather easy to interpret and award credit for formal service-school courses, demonstrated proficiency in military occupations, and college-level tests.
CCRI will award college credit for your completed coursework and military occupations, if you are accepted into a degree program, currently enrolled in courses and if the learning relates to your degree plan.
The total number of credits most active duty military personnel can receive from sources external to the Community College of Rhode Island is limited to 75% of your degree program. In most cases, 45 is the maximum number of credits you may earn through the use of College Level Examination Program Tests, CCRI Challenge Exams, Sponsored Learning and the PLA Petition process.
The number of credits you may receive from sources external to the Community College of Rhode Island is limited to half the number of credits for your degree program. In most cases, 30 is the maximum number of credits you may earn through the use of College Level Examination Program Tests, CCRI Challenge Exams, Sponsored Learning and the PLA Petition process.
