Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges

Saint Leo University is a member of Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges and participates in the SOCAD (Army), SOCNAV (Navy), SOCMAR (Marines), and SOCCOAST (Coast Guard) networks. The University supports the SOC statement of principles and criteria as a framework for transfer policies that are fair, equitable, and effective in recognizing the special and often limiting conditions faced by military students.

Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC), established in 1972, is a consortium of national higher education associations and more than 1,700 institutional members. SOC Consortium institutional members subscribe to principles and criteria to ensure that quality academic programs are available to military students, their family members, civilian employees of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Coast Guard, and veterans. A list of current SOC Consortium member institutions can be found on the SOC website at http://www.soc.aascu.org.

SOC Degree Network System

The SOC Degree Network System (DNS) consists of a subset of SOC Consortium member institutions selected by the military services to deliver specific associate's and bachelor's degree programs to service members and their families. Institutional members of the SOC DNS agree to special requirements and obligations that provide military students, their spouses, and their college-age children with opportunities to complete college degrees without suffering loss of academic credit due to changes of duty station.

SOC operates the 2- and 4-year Degree Network System for the Army (SOCAD), Navy (SOCNAV), Marine Corps (SOCMAR), and Coast Guard (SOCCOAST). Refer to the SOC Degree Network System-2 and -4 Handbooks to view associate's and bachelor's degree programs, location offerings, and college information. An electronic version of the Handbook is posted on the SOC website, http://www.soc.aascu.org, and on the SOCAD, SOCNAV, SOCMAR, and SOCCOAST home pages.

SOC agreements are prepared at the time of the transfer evaluation for all active-duty Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard members applying for SOC-network majors. Military family members may request agreements for SOC-network majors through their Center.
