MCMC Knowledge Communities
Articulation of Academic Credit
This group’s work focus is to identify policies and promising practices at the national, state, and institutional level that can facilitate the translation of military training and experience into college credit/progress toward completing a certificate or degree program and to share this information with the Multi-State Collaborative on Military Credit (MCMC) stakeholders.
Licensure and Certification
This group’s work focus is to address the absence of common standards for service credentialing programs, inconsistent state laws, and a lack of understanding about how military training and experience translates into licensing and academic credits, and extend the results of the existing national efforts to all states in the MCMC.
Communications and Outreach
This group’s focus is to address the two gaps that have been identified: a) Inadequate communication to current/former service members regarding higher education opportunities and planning; and b) Lack of consistent and accurate information. This group will need to identify policies that can enhance the ways in which information can be communicated to service members about how their military training and experience can result in progress toward earning a postsecondary certificate, degree, or professional license or certification.
Data, Technology, and Systems
This work group will help build the bridge among the Joint Services Transcript (JST) provider, the appropriate military staff decision makers who can approve electronic access of the JST, and the MCMC stakeholders, so that a service member will have an option to be able to import academic and military coursework into Transferology.
