Multi-state Collaborative on Military Credit

Focus Statement

To identify policies and promising practices at the national, state, an institutional levels that can facilitate the translation of military training and experience into college credit/progress toward completing a certificate or degree program and to share this information with the Multi-State Collaborative on Military Credit (MCMC) stakeholders.


Through this Lumina grant opportunity, the Work Group has identified that it will be able to:

·         Further review and analyze promising policies, procedures, practices and structures in evaluating and awarding college credit; and

·         Share/spread the available information to constituents within the MCMC member states, institutions, and beyond.


Outreach activities will consist of five objectives:

·         The MCMC stakeholders coming together via workshops and statewide convening to further learn and share information about promising policies, procedures, practices, and structures;

·         Development of materials/publications such as a toolkit;

·         Presentations at conferences and meetings in order to reach out to broader audiences beyond the MCMC;

·         Continuation of existing collaborative working relationships with ACE, DANTES, College Source, CAEL, and Council of College and Military Educators (CCME); and

·         Development of new relationships with other key organizations, such as American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO), Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U), and others as appropriate.
