College Credit for Military Courses

Students may be granted credit for military school coursework, based on the recommendations for institutions of higher education in the appropriate volume of the American Council of Education Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services. The student must provide the Registrar with an official Armed Forces transcript in order to have such credit evaluated.

Active Duty Student Residency Exemptions

For active-duty servicemembers, and their spouses and college-age children, Sierra Nevada College limits the academic residency requirement to twenty-five percent or less of usual for all degrees. There are also no “final year” or “final semester” residency requirements for active-duty servicemembers and their families. The academic residency requirements can be completed at any time that active-duty servicemembers and their family members are enrolled.  Reservist and National Guardsmen on active duty are covered in the same manner.
