Governor Snyder signed legislation on Tuesday that will allow veterans and active duty members to be eligible for college credits because of their military experience. In a news release, Snyder said "there are many areas in which military experience overlaps with education taught in college courses, and this new law will help ensure that credit is granted for that knowledge, allowing service members to receive their degree in a shorter period of time so they can embark on their new career."

The legislation requires collaboration between the American Council on Education Registry of Credit Recommendations and the Department of Defense identifying where military experience coincides with certain course so that veterans can receive credit for those courses.
