College Credit for Heroes
The College Credit for Heroes initiative seeks to maximize college credits awarded to veterans and service members for their military experience in order to expedite each individual's transition into the Texas workforce.
The Texas Workforce Commission is committed to honoring veterans and service members by helping them enter the Texas workforce with the recognition of the skills they earned while honorably serving their country.
To help veterans translate their military service skills into college credits and certifications, seven Texas College are creating standards for assessing military training that can then be used by any college in the state.
