12FTCC militaryFayetteville Technical Community College is an industry leader in awarding college credit for prior learning experiences to include military training. With over 200 military career evaluations and more than 250 programs of study, FTCC offers members of the U.S. Armed Forces and veterans the opportunity to pursue a higher education degree while utilizing the training they have completed as a part of their military career.

Whether advancing within the military or transitioning to the civilian workforce, military students and veterans will find that FTCC is committed to their success. As the leader in credit for prior learning, FTCC specializes in translating military training to college-level learning and credit.

FTCC is committed to offering service members and veterans the opportunity to complete programs of the highest quality and integrity as they pursue personal and professional success goals.  FTCC’s most popular and most flexible degree is the associate in general education, which allows students to capitalize on credits earned through military training and transfer with ease to one of FTCC’s partner institutions for an advanced degree.

The associate in general education degree consists of 64 total semester hours, 48 of which may be applied from other colleges and institutions as well as from military training. To earn this degree at Fayetteville Tech, a minimum of 16 semester hours must be taken with our institution, either online or face to face. Often, many military students and veterans pursuing this degree only need to complete the general education courses, such as English, math and social science, to complete the degree.

In addition to offering the associate in general education, FTCC offers several certificate and diploma programs. FTCC is committed to providing in-demand educational opportunities that will benefit students in the professional environment, giving them an edge on the competition when seeking employment on the civilian market. Several certificate programs in the criminal justice technology and supply chain management fields have been added recently. Many of the courses necessary for the certificates may be awarded through the training military service members and veterans have already received in their careers. Most of these certificates are completed within two semesters.

FTCC recognizes the fact that service members train hard to achieve and maintain a standard of excellence and that their efforts deserve to be recognized in the civilian world. Awarding college
credit for military training also serves our veterans as they make the transition from active duty to civilian life. Fayetteville Tech places these students on the fast track to earning educational
credentials and being prepared for a competitive work environment.

Students who wish to have their military training converted to college credit will simply need to submit the joint services transcript to FTCC by logging in at https://jst.doded.mil and following the
prompts for submitting an official transcript.
