All veterans and active duty military students are required to provide a copy of their Joint Services Transcript (JST) to Skagit Valley College as there is potential to receive credits based on your military experience. Additionally, if you have earned college credit from previous schools, you must submit those official transcripts for evaluation.
The Importance of Transcript Evaluation
At Skagit Valley College, we want to help you reach your educational goals. Having your transcripts evaluated before you enroll at SVC ensures that you:
- Get credit from the military and other colleges you attended. This can shorten the time it takes to get your degree or certificate.
- Take the correct classes for your degree. The Veterans Administration (VA) or the Virtual Education Center may require repayment if you take classes for which you could have received credit.
How do I get my transcript(s) evaluated?
- Order your official JST and all other college transcripts and have them sent to Skagit Valley College
- If you have them sent to your residence, do not open them as they must be unopened to be official. Bring them unopened to Enrollment Services at Mount Vernon Campus or to Student Services at the Whidbey Island Campus.
- Submit a Transcript Evaluation Request to Enrollment Services at the Mount Vernon Campus or to Student Services at the Whidbey Island Campus. This will initiate the evaluation process.
- Include JST and all other colleges under "Transcripts to be Evaluated."
All veteran students should review the information at www.skagit.edu/veterans and visit one of the Veterans Education Offices located on the Mount Vernon and Whidbey Island Campuses to learn more about the process to access and use your Veterans Administration (VA) Educational Benefits. For additional information about using the GI Bill for college classes, please contact a Veterans Education office.
