College Credit for Heroes

You learned a lot while serving your country.

Why not get credit for it? 

The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) recently announced an award of $198,154 to the University of Houston-Clear Lake through its College Credit for Heroes (CCH) program, a statewide effort designed to maximize the award of college credit to veterans and service members for their military experience.

At University of Houston-Clear Lake, we are developing an official process for students to use their military training towards select bachelor’s degrees. This would place you on a fast track to completing a degree to elevate you in your next career.

The program is called College Credit for Heroes and it was created by the Texas Workforce Commission to maximize college credit awarded to military service members and veterans (like you) for their military experience. The program’s goal is to eliminate obstacles in your pursuit to attain licensing, certification, accreditation and degree awards so that you can transition more quickly from college to the workforce.

Get credit for your training, complete your academic goals in less time and spend less money.

The grant is for a two-year period, and began on August 1, 2023.  Please check back for updates.  The goal is to have an official evaluation process established and in process by Fall 2024.
