Academic Residency

You only have to complete at least 25% of degree requirements with our institution.

Credit for Non-Traditional Learning

SOC and SOCCOAST colleges award credit for military experience and training based on American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations and standardized tests such as CLEP and DSST, where it is appropriate towards your degree plan.

Student Agreement

FNU agrees to issue a Student Agreement (evaluation of completed and remaining degree requirements) by the time you complete six semester hours of credit with our institution. This serves as a ‘contract for degree’ between you and our institution and remains in effect even if you leave the military.

We support the SOC DNS to guarantee transfer of courses in SOC DNS Course Categories. There will be a limit of fifty percent of course transfer to a degree program.
