How it Works
Dallas College is invested in providing value for military training and experience by the award of academic credit. Through a partnership with the Texas Workforce Commission, the Dallas College, College Credit for Heroes (CCH) program was established to maximize academic credit awards for military training and experience.
Credit may be determined in three (3) ways, evaluation of military transcripts, application of standard credit for initial entry training (boot camp) and award of general elective credit.
Officially submitted Joint Services Transcripts (JST) and Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) will be evaluated and specific course credit awarded based on the student military training and experience. Not all military training will receive recommendations for specific course credit.
Joint Services Transcripts (JST) will be evaluated, and credit awarded based on the Dallas College Military Transfer Credit (MTC) Tool recommendations.
Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcripts will be evaluated in accordance with established processes for all transcripts from accredited education institutions.
Initial Entry Training (Boot Camp)
Students who completed initial military training will be awarded four (4) credit hours, PHED 1100, PHED 1116, PHED 1130, and PHED 1164. (Note: A DD-214, CCAF transcript or JST are acceptable documentation).
In addition to the specific course credit from the transcript review and initial entry awards, up to twelve (12) credit hours of general electives may be awarded from the CCAF transcript or JST.
