Please note: At Eastern, active duty and discharged veterans can and do convert their military training to college credit.
Military training can qualify for up to 30 hours or more of college credit towards a degree.
Financial Aid is available for qualified students.

For more information, contact Eastern’s Veterans Certifying Official and Financial Aid Director Amanda Roberson Sites at 304-434-8000, or toll-free: 877-982-2322 (email: amanda.sites@easternwv.edu )

Eastern recognizes the unique nature of the military lifestyle and has committed itself to easing the transfer of relevant course credits, providing flexible residency requirements, and crediting learning from approved military training and experiences. Also, Eastern may grant a maximum of four hours of physical education (PE) credit for military service.

The student must apply for military credit with the Records Office when 12 hours of residence credit has been accumulated. In addition to military PE credit, Eastern West Virginia Community & Technical College also awards credit for classes taken through USAFI (United States Armed Forces Institute). Credit may also be awarded based on the American Council for Education recommendations for certain military schools.  Contact the Monica Wilson, Interim Dean for Student Services and Associate Director of Admissions, for more information and procedures
