Evaluation of Military Experience and Education for Academic Credit

Seals of the five branches of the armed forces

North Shore Community College proudly supports its comprehensive VALOR Act Academic Credit Evaluation Policy for our veteran and active-duty military students. We recognize the value of the many foundational training and leadership learning experiences provided by the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. Veteran and active-duty students may be eligible to receive academic credit for these experiences through the Center for Alternative Studies and Educational Testing.

Credit may be awarded for prior learning that is evaluated as college-level learning as it applies to a student's chosen program of study or as an elective. There are many pathways to success. Please contact Assessment Officer Mike Monagle at (978) 739-5539, by email at mmonagle@northshore.edu, or feel free to stop by Mike's office on the 2nd floor of the Berry building on our Danvers campus (DB-217) for assistance.

Complete this Form of Interest and we will contact you to discuss your options.

Remember to follow the steps on your Veterans Students Checklist
