In The Region:

Gov. Kasich is proposing a change in the way veterans receive credit toward a college degree.

In his latest budget proposal, Kasich wants to develop a set of standards and procedures for granting college credit for military training, experience and coursework. Joshua Rider is the director for the Center for Adult and Veteran Services at Kent State University. He says Kasich’s proposal will require better communication between colleges and the Department of Defense.

“That’s kind of basically what we’ve talked about for years, but it’s difficult because sometimes the military has to change the way they do things as well. They have to give more complete descriptions on the transcript of the courses.”

Rider says each of the five branches of the military has different transcripts.

Rider says at Kent State, the veteran’s transcript will go through the Transfer Center and then to the respective college his or her major falls under. Most credits that are accepted count as general elective credits.
