CREDITS2CAREERS is a free academic and career portal, designed specifically for prospective military and veteran students, that presents multiple academic pathways for these students to apply their previous military experience towards degree programs prior to applying to a VCCS Institution.
Easily and quickly create a free Credits2Careers portfolio. Import your joint services transcript into the portal, which will then extract and record all components of your military career for which credit can be granted by VCCS colleges. Then, amplify your portfolio with additional courses, examinations, credentials, certifications or other achievements to see if additional credit can be granted.
Based on the information in your Credits2Careers portfolio, instantly get an estimate of your credit for prior learning. You will be able to review academic programs and associated degree maps that illustrate how your credits are granted. Explore degree and non-degree programs by field of study and identify the VCCS colleges that offer them.
The Credits2Careers portal will take into account your military occupation classification, personal interests, interest evaluations and present you with the higher education programs offered by VCCS colleges for any career, as well as earnings potential tuned to the specific geographic area where they are interested in living.
When the time comes, the platform also houses a resume builder and allows access to a comprehensive national database of jobs tuned to the specific area where you are interested in transitioning to make the process as simple as possible.
If you have any questions about C2C, your estimated credits for prior learning documented in My Service, or as you explore your academic or career options, you can request to connect to any advisor at any of the VCCS colleges you are considering. You will be notified by email when an advisor is assigned to you at each of the colleges you have indicated in your request. Once you have been assigned an advisor, you can message them from within C2C.
