College Credit for Heroes

CCH Logo

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.

Identify Your College Credits with Our Evaluation

You can use the system to:

  •  Search for recommended college credits that may be awarded for military occupations, military courses, Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) courses and designated nationally recognized examinations (CLEP, DANTES and Excelsior).

  • Request an official evaluation of your military experience and training through CCH

  • Request a transcript of awarded credits be sent to a participating Texas college of your choice.  The receiving college will review the transcript and determine which credits can be applied to the degree or certificate you wish to pursue.  If you attended other colleges, you may be asked to provide official transcripts.

  • Communicate with CCH staff; check the status of you evaluation and/or your transcript request; and upload, view and download military evaluations results and related documents.
