Veterans Educational Benefits

Prior Education and Military Experience


Prior Education/ Military Credit Evaluation


Students using VA benefits must have all of their prior education and training, military and civilian, evaluated for possible transfer credit when they first enroll at CSM. CSM will grant credit as appropriate to the student's current program of study. You have up to two semesters of enrollment to obtain official transcripts from all previously attended schools and/or military training.

If our Admission's Office does not receive and evaluate your transcripts by the end of your second semester of enrollment with us, we will not be able to certify any future enrollments with the VA.

Source documents for military education are armed forces official transcripts. Please have your official transcripts sent to:
