Credit for Prior Learning

Credit for Military Service

The university grants lower-division undergraduate credit for completion of basic training in the armed forces of the United States. This credit is applied to the Lifelong Understanding area of General Education.

A limited amount of additional credit may be granted to students who have completed certain service schools in addition to basic training. The total amount of credit earned on the basis of externally developed tests and through recommendations of the commission, which may be applied to a baccalaureate degree, shall not exceed 45 quarter units, except that advanced placement credit is excluded from the limit. The full policy for the CSU system outlines how credit earned through the Armed Forces applies.
