Kansas Board of Regents launches Military Articulation Portal
(Topeka, Kan.) - Today the Kansas Board of Regents (KBOR) announced the launch of its Military Articulation Portal (MAP). Many Kansas postsecondary institutions offer college credit for military experience. MAP provides a central resource for military servicemembers and veterans to explore the course credit available to them at public postsecondary institutions in Kansas.
“Veterans and servicemembers possess a wealth of experience and skills that they have learned in the military,” said KBOR President and CEO Blake Flanders. “Kansas has been a leader in offering college credit for that experience, helping veterans get a head start on postsecondary programs. I’m excited that we are launching this portal to make it simple to identify available college credit and programs.”
MAP is available at military.kansasregents.org.
The portal links specific military occupations and courses to postsecondary course credit within applicable degree programs. It allows servicemembers and veterans to search for college credit options based on their Military Occupational Specialties or by institutions and programs.
MAP was funded in part by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.
