Transportation Programs Salute Veterans

Dear Veterans,

In this ever-changing world, we at the Minnesota State Transportation Center of Excellence (TCOE) know a few things to forever be true.  

Service is not only the backbone of the transportation industry, but the driving force behind liberty and justice for all in our country.  To all of you reading this now, all who served before you, and to all who will serve in the future, WE SALUTE YOU!  

From all of us at the TCOE, and our college partners across the Minnesota State College and University system, thank you!

Join us in proudly recognizing just a few of the many service men and women who are part of our Minnesota State Transportation programs.

Minnesota State provides information, services, and support to veterans and services members along with military to college tools to meet your goals.

You can view education, career and life planning, financial, military transfer and policy resources or connect directly to any of the 37 colleges and universities of Minnesota State. You can use the military-to-college checklist prepared by the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs Higher Education Veterans Program to identify and complete the tasks that will prepare you for college.


By using the Veterans Education Transfer System (VETS), you may find out what academic credit is available from Minnesota State colleges and universities based on your military occupation. To see what credits are available based on your military courses please see TransferologyTM.


When applying for admission, request that an official copy of your military transcripts be sent to your campus transfer specialist or registrar. The campus will evaluate your military transcript to determine whether or not the credits are applicable to your program. For the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard request your Joint Services Transcript. For the Air Force request your Community College of the Air Force transcript


Learn how to use the military education benefits earned from your service and explore other financial support that will contribute to college success.


Getting the most out of your college education requires hard work, planning and a commitment from you. Using career exploration and goal setting resources from GPS Lifeplan will help you get going in a direction that is right for you.
