Military Training & Experience

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 anyone can receive from sources external to the Community College of Rhode Island is limited to 75% of your degree program. In most cases, these means 45 credits is the maximum number of credits through any accelerated pathway for prior learning.

Transcript requests for all branches of the service may be obtained and sent to CCRI via the Joint Service Transcript website:
