Military Request for Credit: House Bill 269

House Bill 269 allows military veterans who enroll in Texas universities and meet certain requirements eligible to receive undergraduate credit for the time they spent in the service for up to 12 credit hours of elective course work.

Eligibility criteria

  • Graduated from a public or private high school accredited by a generally recognized accrediting organization or from a high school operated by the US Department of Defense.

Proof of eligibility

All students interested in receiving HB 269 military credit must provide the Military Service Credit Request Form and a copy of the DD-214 member 4 to the Office of the Registrar.

  • Completed at least two years of service in the armed forces (or discharged because of a disability).
  • Been honorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces

ASU degree programs do not all have opportunities for general elective courses and you may have already received credit for enough electives, so you will need to speak with your academic advisor to determine the number of credits to request based on the number of general electives in your degree plan. As a result, some veterans may want to request all 12 credit hours or it may better serve others to accept fewer than 12 credit hours. Students can request 3, 6, 9 or the full 12 credit hours.

Military Service Credits will not be removed once awarded. Students should understand how military service credits affect:

  • Your eligibility for a tuition rebate
  • Texas B-On Time loan forgiveness
  • Excess credit hours that may result in higher tuition and
  • Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements

Students should consult their academic advisor for advice on the number of credits from military service that can be used in their degree program to avoid possible negative effects. ​
