Veterans Admissions

Prescott College welcomes applications from veterans and their families to all academic programs. Prescott College was the first private school in Arizona to be recognized as a Veteran-Supportive Campus, is a Yellow Ribbon school, and offers a Veterans Resource Center. Individuals may attend or participate in a program of education if the VA Beneficiary (from any chapter - including Chapter 31 or Chapter 33) provides the school with a "Certificate of Eligibility" (COE). 

Specific admissions processes that benefit veterans include:

Military Transfer Credits

Prescott College awards transfer credits for U.S. military services training via the American Council on Education (ACE) endorsement transcripts, A.A.R.T. (Army ACE Registry Transcript), and S.M.A.R.T. (Sailors/Marines ACE Registry Transcript). The College also awards transfer credit for tests administered to military personnel by DANTES, AART and SMART transcripts and DANTES scores will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis with faculty input. Only those courses that pertain to an applicant’s degree program will be awarded transfer credit.


Veterans who reapply for admission within five years of their last enrollment at the College and who left in order to perform military service will be readmitted with the same academic status as when last in attendance.

Exceptions may be made in cases of veterans with other than honorable discharge.
