Taylor Votes: SB 18 – Rewarding our Veterans in Education

Tom’s vote:  YES

SB 18 requires the Technical College System of Georgia to establish policies for granting academic credit to active duty military or veteran students for college-level learning acquired prior to their enrollment. Training and experience from military service must be substantially related to the coursework credit given by the Technical College System of Georgia.

This bill allows active duty or veteran students to get academic credit for relevant experience (documented) received in the military.  This is a fantastic tool for our workforce development efforts in Georgia.
