    March 18, 2022 - San Diego Mesa College has been accepted into the 2022 cohort of 52 California Community Colleges to utilize the Military Articulation Platform (MAP), which allows student veterans to maximize academic credits for prior learning acquired through their military service. MAP is an online system that matches college courses to American Council on Education (ACE) Military Guide recommendations. Articulation decisions for Mesa College courses will ultimately be made with input from faculty, evaluators, and articulation officers. Once Mesa College is fully integrated into the cloud-based system, students with military experience will be able to upload their joint services transcripts into MAP and find out which credits they can receive for courses they took and occupations they held while in the military. In effect, MAP will streamline the process of earning college credits for prior military training.
