The Distance Minnesota Team strongly believes in supporting servicemembers and veterans in pursuing their educational goals. We work in conjunction with several partners, one of them being My Military Education, which is part of the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs – Higher Education Veterans Program.
We encourage individuals to explore programs in which academic credit is awarded based on their experience in the military. Please check out the Distance Minnesota online degree programs currently offering military credit. We are always looking to expand this listing, so if you do not see your military training/occupation or the program you are interested in listed, let us know.
Visit MyMilitaryEducation.org to find your Regional Coordinator who is happy to guide you through all aspects of higher education, especially the often complicated process of military education benefit enrollment and GI Bill decisions. They are readily available and share their time on each of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities campuses.
This site is also a resource for finding your military transcripts, estimating education benefits with the interactive flowchart, career planning and learning about dependent benefits. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this great resource!
