Q: How do I participate in the SOCNAV Degree Network System with AMU?

A: After you have applied for Admission to AMU and chosen one of the
approved SOCNAV Degree Network System (DNS) Programs, you
should begin the Transfer Credit Evaluation process immediately. During
this process, your prior academic, military, and exam credits will be
reviewed and applied toward your new AMU Bachelor's Degree. Once
this is completed, your SOCNAV STUDENT AGREEMENT will be generated
and sent to you via e-mail.

Visit the APUS Transfer Credit site to "GET STARTED" with the Transfer
Credit Evaluation Process.

While waiting for the results of your Credit Evaluation to be completed
and your Student Agreement to be generated, we encourage you to
register for a course unlike any other you have taken in the past.  If
you need assistance with your first course selection, please contact

It is important to note that while AMU makes every effort to identify
our eligible SOCNAV students, it is the student's responsibility to
alert AMU that he/she may fall under the SOCNAV DNS by e-mailing
his/her Student ID to 

Q: I'm already enrolled in one of the approved
programs at AMU,
do I qualify for participation in the SOCNAV Degree Network

A: As with most articulation agreements or MOUs, participation in the
SOCNAV Degree Network is only open to students who are admitted to
AMU after our official acceptance into the Degree Network System,
which is March 31, 2008. 

Students who completed their transfer admission (TCE) to AMU before
official participation in the SOCNAV Degree Network were admitted
under program, admissions, and transfer credit policies in place at the
time, and therefore are not eligible to participate.
