MI-litary Equivalency Project – What’s Next?
The Pre-Conference Military Credit Mapping Summit on 9/26 was the capstone event of CMVE’s MI-litary Equivalency Project. All materials from the program are on the 2017 conference website. In addition to the presentation materials, all CMVE members are invited to access and utilize all materials posted as digital resources to continue building direct transfer equivalencies for ACE credit recommendations found on the Joint Services Transcript (JST). To continue the momentum of the MI-litary Equivalency Project, CMVE’s Academic Credit Knowledge Community will sponsor webinars (see above re: November 8th webinar!) and targeted dialogue to foster continued campus action around building military equivalencies at the institutional level. Along these lines, if any CMVE members have an interest in working on a presentation around inputting military equivalencies into institutional transfer databases, please contact Katie Giardello for more information.
