Military Credits for Clemson Students

In an ongoing effort to increase veteran inclusiveness for Clemson military-connected students, we are creating ways to recognize the advanced training and schooling achieved through military service.

Academic Credit for Military Training

Clemson currently has a task force working to create a policy for reviewing Joint Service Transcripts and similar military documents to grant academic credit during the admissions process. Until that policy is established, student veterans are encouraged to work with their academic advisors to see if their military training can apply for credit using a Course Substitution Form or Credit-By-Exam.

Cross Cultural Awareness (CCA) Credit for Overseas Military Experience

The Class of 1967 Endowment for Veterans Resources was established by the Class in honor of their 50th Anniversary with a pledge of $100,000. The endowment budget, governed through Clemson University Foundation policies and procedures, will provide operational support for the Clemson Student Veteran Center. To date, the class has raised more than $60,000, and one class member has committed to match, dollar for dollar, any gift donated to reach the $100,000 goal before the deadline of July 2020.

If you have 3 or more months of overseas military experiece, you may qualify for IS 1010, a one-credit pass/fail online course that, once complete, will grant Cross Cultural Awarenness General Education credit. To enroll in IS 1010, contact Clemson Abroad at abroad@clemson.edu. For more information, visit the Study Abroad website.
