College Makes It Easier for Vets to Use Credits

Pellissippi State Community College is making it easier for military veterans to receive college credit for their experience.

With a state $70,190 Veteran Reconnect grant, Pellissippi State plans by next fall to improve its process for veterans to know what credit they can receive before they enroll in college.

Currently about 500 Pellissippi State students are military veterans.

“There are about 83,000 veterans in Tennessee with some college credit but no degree,” said Eric Bollmann, director of Veterans Services at Pellissippi State.
