Valor Act Academic Credit Policy

In accordance with the Valor Act, BCC evaluates academic credit earned for military training, experience, or coursework using the same standards as those applied to coursework from regionally accredited colleges and universities. BCC reviews military transcripts (e.g. SMART and AARTS), college transcripts, and CLEP and DANTES Subject Standardized Tests for potential transfer of credit to the student’s intended program of study. Credit for Military experience (DD214) shall also be granted where applicable, as recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE). Every effort will be made to recognize and award academic achievement consistent with the College’s general transfer-in policies.
