The College Credit for Heroes (CCH) system allows users to identify college credits that may be earned for experience and training while serving in the U.S. military. Earned credits may be applied to a program of study at a college or university in Texas or for credentialing purposes.
Use this section of the website to get started and follow the links for detailed instructions available to CCH Account holders (active duty military, reservists, or veterans who currently reside in the state of Texas, intend to relocate to Texas within the next 120 days or are Texas residents).
Services available to users of this system
You can use the system to:
- Search the CCH databases for recommended college credits that may be awarded for military occupations, military courses, Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) courses, and designated nationally recognized examinations (CLEP, DANTES, and Excelsior).
- Request an official evaluation of your military experience and training through CCH. (As an option, if you have a copy of your military transcripts, request an unofficial evaluation before initiating the formal process.)
- Request a CCH transcript of evaluated college credits be sent to a participating Texas college or university of your choice. Your school will determine which credits can be applied towards your program of study. The college or university and its faculty retain the right to determine applicability to specific programs of study.
- Use your CCH account to communicate with CCH staff; check the status of your evaluation and/or your transcript request; and to upload, view and download military evaluation results and related documents.
