Key Features of SOCCOAST

Reduced Academic Residency
You only have to complete 25% or less of degree requirements with your home college (30% for completely online programs).

Credit for Non-Traditional Learning
SOCCOAST colleges award credit for military experience and training based on American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations, and standardized tests such as CLEP and DSST, where it is appropriate to your degree plan.

Student Agreement
Your home college agrees to issue a SOCCOAST Student Agreement (evaluation of completed and remaining degree requirements) by the time you complete six semester hours of credit with that college. This serves as a "contract for degree" between you and your home college and remains in effect even if you leave the military.

Conveniently offered online to meet the demands of your busy schedule, GCU's four -credit courses allow service members to complete their degree efficiently. You will benefit from challenging course work and learn from full-time online instructors who are industry leaders and subject matter experts.
