Credit for Military Service

In accordance with procedures established by the University System of Georgia, MGA offers credit for military service using the following criteria (USG Academic & Student Affairs Handbook, 2.16 Credit for Military Service) and based on training courses identified in the ACE National Guide to College Credit for Workforce Training.

Academic Credit

When a student requests academic credit based on experience in the military service, the following procedure is followed:

  1. The Registrar researches the American Council on Education (ACE) Guide to determine the recommendation made by that organization.
  2. The Registrar advises appropriate academic department head(s) of ACE recommendation(s).
  3. The appropriate academic officer advises the registrar of what credit, if any, is to be granted in that specific discipline. Credit should not be awarded for course/experiences not offered by Middle Georgia State University.
  4. The Registrar records appropriate credit on official transcript and advises both the student and academic advisor of the credit that has been granted.

The total number of combined hours earned through correspondence, extension, and military experiences shall not exceed 15 credit hours.

MGA will also award a maximum of 40 credit hours towards a degree through AP, CLEP, DANTES, departmental exams, and Prior Learning Assessments.
