The College Credit for Heroes program seeks to maximize college credit awarded to veterans and service members for their military experience in order to expedite their transition into the Texas workforce. The program’s goal is to eliminate obstacles to attaining degrees, licensing and certification so that veterans transition more quickly from college classrooms to the workforce.

This program offers innovative approaches for awarding college credit by evaluating military training and experience, including testing and prior learning assessments. This allows veterans and active duty service members to demonstrate they are able to meet the competencies and cognitive objectives while not having to complete an entire program.

At Temple College, the College Credit for Heroes program offers veterans, service members and working adults an opportunity for accelerated entry into fields such as:

  • Emergency Medical Services
  • Nursing
  • Criminal Justice
  • Business
  • Computer Information Systems

How to Get Started

Apply to Temple College and have your transcripts sent to Temple College. See below for information on how to request your military transcripts.

Military transcripts will be evaluated by the VA Coordinator and his staff using the American Council on Education (ACE) standards. The VA Coordinator will then apply applicable credits to your new Temple College transcript. There is no charge for this service.
