Valor Act Supports Veterans

In May 2012, Massachusetts passed a Valor Act that requires state agencies to actively promote and streamline access to their services for Veterans. As a result, the Board of Higher Education has

  • Created a state-level policy that requires development of campus-level CLEP policies at state institutions
  • Transferred credit earned under this policy across the state

 Now, campus-level policies

  • Grant academic credit for student’s prior or concurrent military occupation, training, and coursework
  • Include credit-by-exam options including CLEP
  • Establish a single point of contact for student Veterans
  • Provide eligible students with accurate and complete counseling on admission
