Prior Credit Evaluation

Dyersburg State Community College will grant credit for military service of both active and reserve service members based on the recommendations of the American Council on Education and the Community College of the Air Force.  Credit may be granted as general elective credit or specific course credit as determined during the evaluation of training. The portion of a student’s transfer credit, which, when applied to the student’s specific degree program, shortens that program. To receive credit for these courses, the students must present a copy of their DD 214 (Separation from Military Service) and joint service transcript.

  • Prior Learning Assessment is a way for you to earn college credit for things you already know or classes you have already completed.
  • Knowledge and skills acquired from military service may be converted into college credit.
