Military Credit - VALOR Act Academic Credit Evaluation Policy

Salem State University recognizes the educational value of military education and experience and will award credit earned for military education and/or military service based on recommendations of the American Council on Education (ACE) and the comparability and applicability of the coursework to the student’s degree program. Institutional credit will be granted for military coursework without clear disciplinary equivalents if ACE guidelines for college credit exist.

Students will be required to submit official military transcripts to transfer services prior to the evaluation and awarding of credit. Students wishing to obtain credit by examination and/or life experience will follow the established policy of the institution for the granting of such credit. Contact Ted Serozynsky, veterans' affairs coordinator, at 978.542.6082 for assistance.
