Does DMACC accept military credit?

How many transfer credits can be applied to my degree?

Why didn't ALL of my credits transfer?

Only courses that are applicable to a student's program are transferred in. If you change programs, your transcript will be re-evaluated. Download the Program Change Form (PDF).
