If you have previously used your VA educational benefits at another school you will need to complete the VA From 22-1995 (for student Veterans) or 22-5495 (for dependents). This Request for Change of Program or Place of Training form can be completed with the Veteran Advisor on your campus.
Transfer students must have their transcripts sent to State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota from ALL previously attended colleges and universities. The Educational Records office on the SCF Bradenton Campus will evaluate all transfer credits. Please note that any transcripts mailed to the SCF Venice campus will automatically be forwarded to the Bradenton campus. The Veterans Administration has the right to cancel all benefits if SCF cannot verify your previous credit. CAUTION: Many credits transferred to SCF often satisfy elective requirements in A.A. degree programs. All student Veterans using VA Educational Benefits must have their official military transcripts submitted to SCF.
How to Access your Military Transcripts
Veterans of the Army, Navy, Marines, and Coast Guard must use the Joint Service Transcript system to access their military transcripts. JST may be accessed via the following website: https://jst.doded.mil/smart/signIn.do. Only official JST transcripts will be accepted by SCF.
Veterans of the Air Force must have their official transcripts sent from Air University (AU). The website may be accessed via: http://www.airuniversity.af.mil/Academic-Affairs/Registrar// .
We encourage you to not register for classes similar to ones previously taken until your transcripts have been fully evaluated. Please note: If transfer credit is granted, regardless of whether you used VA Education Benefits, coursework cannot be repeated. If you are unsure about transfer credit you should schedule an appointment with your Veteran Advisor before registering for classes.
