Academic Credit For College-Level Learning Acquired In The Military

Pickens Technical College will assess the veteran’s JTS and will award credit based on ACE recommendation. Any student who has acquired occupational knowledge in his/her program area through previous education, work experience, on-the-job training or any means other than formal education may challenge any course that will apply to specific CTE certificate programs. Some courses within a program do not provide challenge opportunities.

Pickens Technical College’s student services coordinator will assist any veteran or active military student in selecting a certificate program and verifying PLA credit awarded for the chosen program of study.
