Law Allows Credit for Military Training

ALTON – To help veterans obtain advanced certifications and degrees, state Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, recently passed legislation to make it easier for veterans to apply their military training to current coursework while enrolled in higher education.

“Members of our military are extremely well trained, but this training does not carry over as academic credit when they return from service and enroll in higher education,” Beiser said. “Many veterans have already taken classes that would teach the same skills at a college, but might be forced to pay for a similar class to learn the same knowledge or skills.”
