College Credit for Military Training

College Credit for Military Training

You’ve certainly learned some new skills while in the service. We are happy to review your military and previous college transcripts to see if transfer credit can be granted towards a Herzing University degree or diploma.

Transcript Review Policy

Herzing University uses the Joint Statement on the Transfer and Award of Credit created by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, the American Council on Education, and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as a guideline for evaluating and awarding the transfer of credit. Within the statement, it sets the following guideline:

Inter-Institutional Transfer of Credit

Transfer of credit from one institution to another involves at least three considerations:

  1. the educational quality of the learning experience which the student transfers;
  2. the comparability of the nature, content, and level of the learning experience offered by the receiving institution; and
  3. the appropriateness and applicability of the learning experience to the programs offered by the receiving institution, in light of the student's educational goals.

In addition, the student must have demonstrated understanding of the course material by earning a grade of C or better in classes taken at a prior college or university. Please note that while Herzing University will try to apply as many incoming credits as possible, credits earned in subjects not directly relating to the program you wish to study may not be applied to that program. For example, healthcare classes would not correlate with a technology degree but may be applied toward the elective requirements for a technology degree until that requirement is filled. For an individual evaluation of your credits, please call a Military Specialist Admissions Advisor at 800-596-0724.

Contact your service branch to have an official transcript sent to Herzing:

Program Offered Nationwide by Herzing University to Help Connect People with Careers, as Unemployment Remains High, but Skills Shortages Emerge for Employers

TOLEDO (October 5, 2011) – Herzing University – Toledo announced today that it is offering a new, free College Preparation Course for individuals who have thought about continuing their education but aren’t quite sure they’re ready. The program is part of a nationwide initiative by Herzing University to lend a hand to individuals who need additional education and training to improve their career potential, but are reluctant to make the commitment due to fears about everything from study skills to work-life balance.

“We hear from so many potential students who really want to pursue additional education to help them move up to better jobs and careers, but they really need the support and confidence to proceed and make that investment in themselves,” said Renée Herzing, president of Herzing University. “We’re making this investment of free classes for students nationwide across all 12 locations as well as Herzing University Online, in an effort to help both individuals and employers to succeed, with skills and education that are aligned with today’s workforce.”

Although the unemployment rate in the Toledo area remains high, employers are concerned about the inability to find skilled employees to fill jobs in many of the high-growth career areas where Herzing University – Toledo focuses its curriculum. The flexibility offered by Herzing University – Toledo to take courses on campus, online or a combination of both, is an important factor for working adults, particularly those with young families.

“This free college preparation course is designed to help everyone from high school students who want to see if small class sizes and one-on-one attention will help them be successful in college, to working parents who are concerned about whether they can succeed in juggling the demands of work, school and family,” said Greg Guzmán, campus president of Herzing University – Toledo. “We’re giving them the opportunity to see what it’s like to learn on campus or online, and find a program that fits their interests and lifestyle.”

The free College Preparation Course is offered as an eight-week program on-campus for individuals who prefer classroom instruction. For those who prefer the flexibility of online classes, the College Preparation Course is also offered as a four-week online class.

Limited space is available for the next class, which begins on October 31. Potential students can find more information and register for one of the free courses at www.herzing.edu/freeclass or by calling 1-800-596-0724.
