In the University of Maine System we want to welcome and support veterans in achieving academic and personal success.  Please connect with the School Certifying Officials to help you navigate the process of accessing your educational benefits.

Veterans may also be able to receive credit for college level learning from  training or on the job experience. Evaluation of your prior learning and military transcripts may contribute toward your degree. For details see Prior Learning Assessment.
