Students who have taken college-level studies while in military service may be eligible to receive credit if their official military reports of educational achievement indicate attainment of college-level equivalency.
Credit will be granted by Ball State according to the guidelines of the Office of Educational Credit (OEC) of the American Council on Education. If the OEC guidelines are in conflict with Ball State policies on the granting of credit, the latter will take precedence.
