Military Students | HCC

Military Students


We welcome military service members, veterans and their families. Earn a degree, diploma or certificate on campus or online, or prepare for a job in one of our Go to Work programs. We offer flexibility and support services to help you reach your goals while serving your country or after you’ve retired from active duty.

Concurrent Admission

If you’re planning to enlist in the Army, you may be eligible for the Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAP), a program designed to help you apply to college and access your benefits. Be sure to select KCTCS as your home college when you enlist.

Transferring Military Credit

We realize that learning isn't limited to the inside of a classroom or to individuals of a certain age. Whether you've been working for years or you're a younger student ready to start your college experience, opportunities for receiving academic credit for college-level learning that you already know are possible.

Through the use of prior learning assessments, or PLAs for short, colleges in our system can measure the college-level knowledge you've gained through your day-to-day life and offer you credit for that prior learning and specialized training received through military service.

Local Experts

The Veterans Office at HCC coordinates Federal and state education benefit programs for veterans and eligible dependents. We can assist veterans and dependents with their application for benefits, and we can certify their enrollment to the US Department of Veterans Affairs Regional Processing Office.
